The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that you can include within the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what really allows you to have a web site since this is where your data and email messages will be. Because these are two separate services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
One of the primary differences between our cloud hosting plans is the amount of domains that you can host in one account. Owning more domain names with active web sites for them means using additional server system resources, so the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the opportunity to select a less expensive plan if you'd like to have just 1 or several sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names within your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans are very powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the number of the domain addresses you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it's your choice how many domain addresses you are going to add and how you will use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you'll host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
With our VPS servers you're going to get plenty of system resources at your disposal and since you are going to have your own server, it's only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you would like. You can choose from three web hosting Control Panels through the registration process and based on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you pick our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names hosted on the server will be managed collectively through one account and newly registered domains will be hosted automatically, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you'll be able to create an individual account for each domain name and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may be more convenient if you need to grant access to a given domain to a third party without giving them access to the entire server or to other domains hosted on it.
