The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the number of registered domains which you can include within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a certain domain address, the hosting aspect is what in fact permits you to have a website considering that this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Because these are 2 independent services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, 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 Shared Hosting
One of the differences between our shared hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses you can host in a single account. Possessing more domains with working websites for them usually means using more server resources, therefore, the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we offer you the option to choose a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just one or a couple of sites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you'll not 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 your choice if you'll also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide features unlimited hosted domains. No matter if you register a number of domain addresses here or you already have them through another company, you can add them in the account on our end with just a few mouse clicks. If you decide to obtain a new domain name through our company, it will even be hosted automatically inside the account, so you will not have to do anything else but start working on the site for it. All hosted domain addresses can be managed easily from a single place through our Hepsia Control Panel. By comparison, in case you use rival Control Panels, you'll be able to register a domain through one system and host it through another, not mentioning that you have to switch between several accounts to manage a couple of domain addresses. Therefore, Hepsia will save you efforts and time when you manage your hosted domain names.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
With our Linux VPS hosting services you will get plenty of resources readily available and since you'll have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you would like. You can select from 3 hosting Control Panels throughout the registration procedure and depending on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our custom Hepsia CP, all domain names hosted on the server will be managed together using one account and newly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you are going to be able to create an individual account for each domain name and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second option may just be more convenient if you have to give access to a given domain to a third party without giving them access to the entire server or to other domains hosted on it.
