Registering a domain and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They're in reality two separate services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains which you could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site data and email messages for them. Your websites 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 grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website if you don't 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 Cloud Web Hosting
One of the differences between our cloud web hosting packages is the number of domain addresses you can host in a single account. Having more domains with working sites for them means using more server system resources, so the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we offer you the opportunity to pick a cheaper plan if you wish to have just one or a few web sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your decision if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated hosting service are really powerful, we've decided not to put any restriction on the amount of the domain names which you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, so it's your choice how many domain addresses you will add and how you will employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you'll host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server plan from our company, you can host as many domains as you wish. You will have your own server, therefore it is your choice how you will employ its system resources. You will be able to register new domains from the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you've already registered with a different company. Because we provide 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll control all hosted domains in one location (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 which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is useful if you wish to give access to your domains to other people.
