Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They're in fact 2 different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the amount of already registered domains that one could accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website data and e-mails for them. Your websites will function in precisely the same way no matter whether the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site until you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
One of the differences between our website hosting packages is the number of domain names that you can host within a single account. Having more domain names with functioning web sites for them means using more server system resources, therefore, the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we give you the opportunity to select a more affordable plan if you wish to have just 1 or several websites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you will also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains through the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated hosting plans are really powerful, we have now decided not to put any restriction on the number of the domain addresses which you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it's under your control how many domains you'll add and how you will use the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you'll be able to register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you are going to host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you like. You will have your own server, therefore it is your choice how you will employ its system resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses through the billing account of your VPS or add domains which you have already registered with another company. Since we provide 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you'll manage all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for each and every domain name that you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is handy if you wish to provide access to the domains to other people.
