If you wish to create a web site, you need 2 things - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are 2 tightly connected, but separate services, while many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given website hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domains you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are actually registered using a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another - either way your websites will operate exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the differences between our shared hosting solutions is the number of domains which you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with active websites for them means using more server resources, therefore, the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we provide you with the opportunity to choose a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just one or a few web sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain addresses in your existing account, so you'll never be restricted by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you 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
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, so it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are managed through the Hepsia Control Panel, which will give you full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, unlike alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domain addresses. In case you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS server package through our company, you're able to host as many domain names as you wish. You will have your own server, therefore it's your choice how you will utilize its system 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 a different company. Because we offer 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 is hosted automatically on the server and you'll manage all hosted domains in one place (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 address that you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you wish to provide access to your domains to other people.
