Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They're in fact two different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the amount of already registered domain addresses which you could accommodate in the same website hosting account and have site data and email messages for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless of whether the domain names are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site if you don't host this domain name in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the main differences between our shared hosting packages is the amount of domains that you can host in one account. Possessing more domain names with active web sites for them means using additional server resources, so the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we offer you the possibility to pick a cheaper plan if you wish to have just 1 or a couple of sites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names inside your existing account, so you will not be restricted 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 direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are really powerful, we have now decided not to set any restriction on the amount of the domain names you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is under your control how many domain names you will add and how you will use the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, eliminating 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 domains you'll be able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our Linux VPS packages can be used to host unrestricted number of domains regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you pick during the ordering process. You'll have plenty of resources available, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create an independent hosting account for every single domain address and we do not have a limit for the amount of accounts that you can create. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will be handled through a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option may be more convenient if you do not need to give access to a particular domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to control the domain names that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain that you register through Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterward.
