If you want to create a web site, you need two things - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in a browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are 2 tightly connected, but independent services, although many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domains you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered using a different company. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - in either case your websites will function in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
The cloud web hosting plans that we offer permit you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can choose what plan to buy and how much to pay based on your requirements. If you want to host more domain names in the future than the number the current package allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade your entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you decide to use the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains in order to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 place, however, there is no limit on the number of domain addresses you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan which you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domain addresses that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore up to you how many domain addresses you'll add and how you will use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our custom Hepsia web hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS server solution through our company, you're able to host as many domain names as you want. You'll have your own server, so it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You can register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you have already registered with a different company. Because we provide three website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you will control all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for every domain name which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is useful if you wish to allow access to the domains to other people.
