Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They are actually 2 separate services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the amount of already registered domains you can accommodate within the same hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website until you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
Using our shared hosting you can host a different amount of domains, regardless of whether you register them with our company or using some other company. In case you host only a few domain addresses, you will probably use less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be less expensive. If you choose to add more domain addresses to your account at some point, you can add additional slots via your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade your entire plan and employ the additional resources for the new domain addresses. Either one of the upgrades takes only a few mouse clicks and is activated instantly. Since registering and hosting a domain address are two different things, there is no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish no matter 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 very powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a fixed number of domains. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, which will provide you with full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few mouse clicks and everything is done quickly and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domains. If you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our Linux VPS can be employed to host unlimited domain names regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you select during the ordering process. You are going to have an abundance of resources at your disposal, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create a separate hosting account for every domain address and we don't have a set limit for the number of accounts that you can create. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names are going to be managed through a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second alternative might be more convenient if you don't need to provide access to a certain domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to control the domain addresses that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain address you register via Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterward.
