Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are actually two separate services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature shows the number of already registered domain names which you could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site data and emails for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless of whether the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site unless you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
The hosting plans we offer allow you to host a different number of domain names. This way, you can choose what package to purchase and how much to pay based on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain addresses in the future than the amount the current plan allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so that you can point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 place, however, there is no limit on the amount of domain names you can register/transfer as part of your account no matter the hosting plan you have picked. Then you could decide if you will host them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, so it would not sound right to be able to host a restricted amount of domain addresses. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, which will give you complete control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, as opposed to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domains. In the event you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server package from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish. You'll have your own server, therefore it's for you to decide how you will employ its system resources. You'll be able to register new domains from the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with a different company. Since we offer you 3 hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you'll control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every single domain which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you'd like to provide access to the domains to other people.
