Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They're in fact two different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature shows the number of already registered domains which you can accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website files and e-mails for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain names are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website until you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

The shared hosting plans we provide allow you to host a different amount of domain names. This way, you can choose what plan to acquire and how much to pay depending on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to employ the registration services of another company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit on the amount of domain names which you can register/transfer as part of your account regardless of the hosting plan that you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you will host them or you will forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the amount of the domain addresses that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it's your choice how many domains you are going to add and how you'll employ the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no restriction how many domain names you can register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you'll host in the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

Our VPS hosting plans can be used to host unlimited domain addresses irrespective of the hosting CP that you pick during the ordering procedure. You will get plenty of system 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 an individual hosting account for every single domain and we do not have a limit for the amount of accounts you can create. If you select our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names are going to be controlled through one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second alternative might be more convenient if you do not need to provide access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to control the domain addresses that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain you register using Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterward.
