The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains that one can include within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting part is what in fact enables you to have a website as this is where your data and e-mails will be. Since these are 2 independent services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

When you use hosting you are able to host a different number of domain names, regardless of whether you register them with our company or with any other service provider. If you host only a couple of domain addresses, you'll likely use less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be less expensive. If you decide to add more domain names in your account at some point, you can add more slots via your web hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the entire plan and use the added system resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades takes just a couple of clicks and is activated right away. Since registering and hosting a domain are 2 different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domain addresses you can register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since our semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the number of the domains that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it is up to you how many domains you are going to add and how you'll use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you will host within the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

Our VPS server packages have no limit for the number of domain names you can host regardless of the Control Panel that you pick throughout the process of ordering. With Hepsia, you are going to be able to handle all domain names in a single location and any new domain name that you register is going to be hosted automatically on the server without having to do anything manually. If you get the VPS with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you can select if a number of domain addresses will be accommodated in one account or if every single domain is going to be hosted in its own account since there's no restriction how many individual accounts you can create by using these two Control Panels. You are able to register new domain addresses from the VPS billing area and choose which of them you want to host and which ones to park and forward.
