Registering a domain and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They're in reality 2 different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains that one could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site files and email messages for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website until you host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting plans that we offer allow you to host a different number of domain addresses. That way, you can pick what plan to get and how much to spend according to your requirements. If you choose to host more domain names later on than the amount the current plan allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so that you can point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit for the amount of domain addresses that you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan that you have picked. 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
As our semi-dedicated hosting service are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the number of the domain names you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's your choice how many domains you'll add and how you'll employ the 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 domains in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all other hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you'll host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want. 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 from the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with a different company. Since we offer you 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you'll manage all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for each domain name you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you would like to provide access to the domains to other people.
