The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that you can include in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 totally different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a web site as this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
Using our hosting you can host a different amount of domain names, regardless of whether you register them with our company or through any other company. If you host only a few domain addresses, you'll probably use less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be more affordable. If you choose to add more domains to your account later on, you can add additional slots using your web hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and employ the extra system resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades takes just a couple of clicks and is activated instantly. Since registering and hosting a domain address are 2 different things, there isn't any limit how many domain addresses you can register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you want regardless of 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 are able to handle is pretty high, therefore it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a limited number of domain addresses. The accounts are managed via the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of clicks and everything is done quickly and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
With our VPS service you're going to get a lot of resources at your disposal and since you are going to have your own server, it's only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you want. You can pick among 3 hosting Control Panels through the registration procedure and based on your choice there are two different options. If you pick our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel, all domains hosted on the server will be managed collectively through a single account and freshly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an individual account for every domain name and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second option may just be more convenient if you have to provide access to a given domain to a third party without granting them access to the entire server or to other domains hosted on it.
