Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are in reality 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain names that you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website files and emails for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way no matter whether the domains 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 allow you to have a site if you don't host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

One of the primary differences between our website hosting packages is the number of domain names that you can host in one account. Owning more domain names with functioning sites for them usually means employing additional server resources, so the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the opportunity to select a more affordable plan if you wish to have just one or several web sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains inside your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your choice if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they are able to handle is quite high, so it would not add up to be able to host a restricted number of domain names. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will give you complete control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of clicks and everything is done quickly and intuitively, in contrast 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 address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server solution from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you want. You will have your own server, so it's up to you how you will employ its system resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses through the billing account of your VPS or add domains which you have already registered with another company. Because we provide 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to handle all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each domain that you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you'd like to provide access to your domains to other people.
