If you want to make a web site, you need two things - your own domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in a browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are 2 tightly related, but individual services, while many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given website hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domains you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains have been registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - either way your sites will function the very same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting solutions we offer allow you to host a different amount of domains. In this way, you can pick what plan to acquire and how much to spend depending on your requirements. If you choose to host more domain names in the future than the number the current plan allows you to, you can easily upgrade the whole package or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you choose to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in one spot, however, there's no limit for the amount of domains which you can register/transfer as part of your account whatever the hosting plan which you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated packages are really powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of the domain addresses that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it is your decision how many domains you'll add and how you'll use the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domains you'll be able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you will host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
If you obtain a virtual private server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you wish. You'll have your own server, so it is your choice how you will use its resources. You will be able to register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you've already registered with another company. Since we offer you 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for each domain address which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
