In order to create a website, you need 2 things - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you enter in an Internet browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website data is going to be. These are 2 closely related, but individual services, even though many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domains that you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered using a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another - in any case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
The shared web hosting packages we offer permit you to host a different amount of domains. This way, you can select what plan to purchase and how much to spend based on your requirements. If you decide to host more domains later on than the amount the current package enables you to, you can easily upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to use the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so that you can direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in one place, however, there is no limit for the number of domain names that you can register/transfer as part of your account regardless of the hosting plan which you have selected. Then you could decide if you will host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a restricted number of domains. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia CP, that will provide 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 quickly and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domains. If you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
With our Linux VPS hosting you're going to get plenty of system resources for your use and since you are going to have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domains as you would like. You can choose between three web hosting Control Panels through the signup process and based on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our custom Hepsia CP, all domain names hosted on the server will be handled collectively via one account and newly registered domains are going to be hosted automatically, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an independent account for every single domain name and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second option could be more convenient if you have to provide access to a given domain to a third party without granting them access to the entire server or to other domains hosted on it.
