If you wish to create a website, you need two things - your own domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you type in a browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your website files will be. These are 2 closely connected, but independent services, although many people believe that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domains you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are actually registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - either way your sites will operate exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
The shared website hosting packages we offer enable you to host a different amount of domain addresses. In this way, you can pick what package to get and how much to spend based on your requirements. If you choose to host more domain addresses later on than the number the current plan allows you to, you can easily upgrade the whole package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you decide to use the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in one location, however, there's no limit for the amount of domains you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan you have picked. Then you can decide if you'll host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you want no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, so it would not add up to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia CP, which will present you with complete control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domains. In the event you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you get a virtual private server package through our company, you're able to host as many domain addresses as you would like. You'll have your own server, so it is up to you how you will employ its resources. You can register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses which you have already registered with another company. Because we provide three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to handle all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each domain name which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is useful if you want to allow access to your domains to other people.
