Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They're actually 2 different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the amount of already registered domains that one could accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless of whether the domain names are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a web site unless you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
One of the primary differences between our cloud website hosting plans is the number of domain addresses which you can host within a single account. Owning more domain names with functioning sites for them usually means employing more server system resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we give you the possibility to pick a less expensive plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a few web 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'll not 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 your decision if you'll also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains via the parking function.
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 would like 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 are able to handle is fairly high, so it would not make sense to be able to host a restricted number of domain names. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with complete control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, unlike rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domains. If you register a new domain 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 from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you like. You'll have your own server, so it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You'll be able to register new domains from the billing account of your VPS or add domain names which you have already registered with a different company. Since we provide 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you will control all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each and every domain name which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is useful if you want to give access to the domains to other people.
