The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting aspect is what really allows you to have a site since this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are 2 independent services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
The hosting solutions we provide permit you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can pick what package to buy and how much to pay according to your needs. If you choose to host more domain addresses later on than the amount the current plan permits you to, you can quickly upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you decide to use the registration services of another company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so that you can point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit on the number of domain names that you can register/transfer inside your account no matter the hosting package that you have chosen. Then you can decide if you will host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a restricted amount of domain names. The accounts are managed 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 very easily and intuitively, unlike rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain addresses. If you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
With our VPS servers you will get plenty of system resources for your use and since you're going to have your own server, it's only natural that you can host as many domains as you would like. You can pick between three web hosting Control Panels during the registration process and based on your choice there are two different options. If you pick our in-house built Hepsia CP, all domains hosted on the server are going to be managed together using one account and newly registered domains are going to be hosted automatically, while if you pick cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an individual account for every single domain name and for new registrations you'll have to add the domains manually. The second alternative may just be more convenient if you want to grant access to a given domain to a third party without giving them access to the whole server or to other domains hosted on it.
