Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They're in reality two separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain names you can accommodate within the same hosting account and have site files and email messages for them. Your websites will function in exactly 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 give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site unless you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
One of the main differences between our web hosting packages is the number of domain addresses which you can host in one account. Having more domains with functioning sites for them means using additional server resources, hence the more domains you intend to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we offer you the opportunity to choose a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a few sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses as part of your existing account, so you'll not be limited by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you wish no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, therefore it would not add up to be able to host a restricted number of domains. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia CP, which will provide you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
If you get a virtual private server package from our company, you're able to host as many domain names as you would like. You will have your own server, so it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You can register new domains through the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you've already registered with another company. Because we offer you 3 hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you will manage all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for every single domain that you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is handy if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
