Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They're in fact two different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature reveals the number of already registered domain names which you could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site files and e-mails for them. Your websites will function in exactly the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site unless you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

The hosting solutions we offer allow you to host a different number of domains. That way, you can choose what package to get and how much to pay in accordance with your needs. If you choose to host more domains in the future than the amount the current plan allows you to, you can quickly upgrade the whole plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 location, however, there's no limit for the number of domain names that you can register/transfer as part of your account whatever the hosting package which you have picked. Then you can decide if you will host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are quite powerful, we have now decided not to set any restriction on the amount of the domain addresses you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore up to you how many domain addresses you will add and how you will use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled through our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other web hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you will host in the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

If you buy a virtual private server solution from our company, you're able to host as many domain addresses as you would like. You'll have your own server, so it is for you to decide how you will utilize its system resources. You'll be able to register new domains through the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you've already registered with another company. Because we offer 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll manage all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every domain name which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you want to give access to your domains to other people.
