Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are in fact two separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature shows the amount of already registered domains that one could accommodate within the same web hosting account and have site data and e-mails for them. Your websites will function in exactly the same way regardless of 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 name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website if you don't host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting

One of the main differences between our cloud web hosting packages is the number of domain addresses you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain names with working sites for them means using more server resources, so the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the option to choose a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just one or several sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domains within your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains through the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since our semi-dedicated plans are very powerful, we have now decided not to set any restriction on the number of the domain addresses that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore under your control how many domain names you will add and how you'll employ the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled using our custom Hepsia website hosting CP which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all the other hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you will host within the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server solution from our company, you can host as many domains as you would like. You'll have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will use its resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you have already registered with another company. Because we provide 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every domain name you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you would like to allow access to your domains to other people.
