The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting part is what in fact allows you to have a site as this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Since these are two different services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting packages we provide permit you to host a different amount of domain addresses. In this way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to pay in accordance with your needs. If you want to host more domain addresses in the future than the amount the current plan permits you to, you can easily upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you decide to employ the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 place, however, there is no limit for the number of domain names which you can register/transfer as part of your account regardless of the hosting plan that you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you'll host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server which we provide comes with unlimited hosted domain names. Regardless of whether you register multiple domains here or you already have them through a different provider, you can include them in the account on our end with only a couple of mouse clicks. If you decide to acquire a new domain address through our company, it will even be hosted automatically inside the account, so you will not need to do anything else but start working on the website for it. All of the hosted domain addresses can be managed effortlessly from a single place through our Hepsia CP. In contrast, if you use rival Control Panels, you can register a domain through one system and host it through another, not mentioning you need to switch between different accounts to regulate a couple of domains. As a result, Hepsia will save you efforts and time when you manage your hosted domains.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a virtual private server solution from our company, you can host as many domain addresses as you would like. You will have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will employ its resources. You can register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you've already registered with a different company. Because we provide three website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you will handle all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for every domain address that you want to host on the server. The last option is practical if you wish to provide access to the domains to other people.
