The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains which you can include within the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services even though many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting element is what in fact permits you to have a web site because this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Since these are 2 separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting plans we provide allow you to host a different number of domain addresses. This way, you can choose what package to purchase and how much to pay according to your requirements. If you decide to host more domains at some point than the number the current package allows you to, you can quickly upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to employ the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so that you can point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 location, however, there's no limit on the number of domains you can register/transfer inside your account no matter the hosting plan that you have chosen. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a restricted number of domain addresses. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia CP, that will provide you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
With our VPS servers you'll get ample resources at your disposal and since you'll have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you wish. You can pick between three web hosting Control Panels through the registration process and based on your choice there are two different options. If you choose our custom Hepsia CP, all domain names hosted on the server will be handled together using a single account and freshly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an individual account for every domain address and for new registrations you will have to add the domains manually. The second option may just be more convenient if you have to provide access to a specific domain to a third party without giving them access to the whole server or to other domains hosted on it.
