If you want to create a web site, you need 2 things - a domain and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in a browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your site files will be. These are two tightly connected, but independent services, even though many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names that you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains have been registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - in any case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting packages we offer permit you to host a different amount of domain names. In this way, you can pick what plan to acquire and how much to pay in accordance with your needs. If you want to host more domains at some point than the amount the current package enables you to, you can easily upgrade your entire package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you want to use the registration services of another company, you will be able to see the name servers 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 prefer to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit for the number of domain addresses which you can register/transfer as part of your account regardless of the hosting plan that you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, we have now decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domain names you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's up to you how many domain names you'll add and how you'll employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP which will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other web hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no restriction how many domain names you'll be able to register or transfer and it is up to you how many of them you are going to host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
With our VPS servers you'll get plenty of system resources readily available and since you'll have your own server, it is only natural that you can host as many domain names as you want. You can select between three web hosting Control Panels throughout the signup process and based on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you select our custom Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses hosted on the server are going to be managed together via a single account and newly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you select cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an independent account for each domain address and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may be more convenient if you want to grant access to a specific domain to a third party without granting them access to the whole server or to other domains hosted on it.
