The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names that you could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting aspect is what actually permits you to have a web site as this is where your files and emails will be. As these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

The cloud hosting plans that we offer permit you to host a different amount of domain names. In this way, you can select what package to buy and how much to spend based on your needs. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current package permits you to, you can easily upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you want to employ the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need 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 want to have everything in one location, however, there is no limit for the number of domain addresses which you can register/transfer as part of your account no matter the hosting package you have picked. Then you could decide if you will host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you want no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, therefore it would not sound right to be able to host a fixed amount of domain addresses. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS

Our Linux VPS can be used to host unlimited domain names irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you pick during the ordering procedure. You will have plenty of resources to use, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create a separate hosting account for each domain name and we do not have a limit for the amount of accounts you can create. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names will be handled from one account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second alternative might be more convenient if you do not need to grant access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain that you register via Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterward.
