The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains that you could add in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two totally different services although some people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting element is what in fact permits you to have a website because this is where your files and emails will be. Since these are 2 independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the main differences between our shared website hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses that you can host in one account. Owning more domain names with active web sites for them usually means employing additional server resources, so the more domain addresses you want to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we offer you the option to choose a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just 1 or several sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains within your existing account, so you'll never be limited by this feature. Irrespective of 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 will direct them to already existing domains using the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated hosting are quite powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domains which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it's under your control how many domain names you are going to add and how you'll employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed using our custom Hepsia hosting CP that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you'll host within the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a virtual private server package from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want. You will have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will use its resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you've already registered with a different company. Because we offer 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to control all hosted domains in one place (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 every domain name which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you'd like to give access to your domains to other people.
