In order to create a website, you need 2 things - your own domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you type in a browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are two closely related, yet separate services, while many people believe that registering the domain name is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - in any case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting solutions that we offer permit you to host a different amount of domain addresses. That way, you can pick what plan to buy and how much to spend depending on your needs. If you choose to host more domain names at some point than the number the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade the whole package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to employ the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains so that you can direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit on the number of domain names that you can register/transfer in your account whatever the hosting package which you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you'll host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our semi-dedicated hosting are very powerful, we have now decided not to put any restriction on the amount of the domains which you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it is up to you how many domain addresses you are going to add and how you will use the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, removing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all the other web hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domain addresses you'll be able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you will host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
With our Linux VPS hosting packages you will get plenty of system resources for your use and since you'll have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain names as you want. You can choose between 3 web hosting Control Panels through the signup procedure and based on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our in-house made Hepsia CP, all domain addresses hosted on the server will be handled collectively using a single account and newly registered domains are going to be hosted automatically, while if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create a separate account for each domain name and for new registrations you will have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may be more convenient if you have to provide access to a certain domain to a third party without giving them access to the entire server or to other domains hosted on it.
