The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names that one can include within 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 signifies that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting aspect is what actually allows you to have a web site as this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Because these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
With our Linux cloud web hosting you are able to host a different number of domain addresses, no matter whether you register them with our company or using an alternative service provider. If you host only a few domains, you'll likely use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you want to add more domain addresses in your account later on, you can add more slots via your website hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and employ the additional resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades requires only a few clicks and is activated right away. Since registering and hosting a domain are 2 different things, there is no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, we have now decided not to put any restriction on the amount of the domain names which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, so it is up to you how many domain addresses you will add and how you'll use the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you will host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server plan through our company, you can host as many domain names as you want. You will have your own server, so it is for you to decide how you will utilize its system resources. You can register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you've already registered with a different company. Since we offer three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you will control all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for each domain you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you'd like to give access to your domains to other people.
