The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you can add within the very same account. Registering a domain address 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 specific domain name, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and emails are going to be. As these are 2 different services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

The shared hosting plans we offer enable you to host a different amount of domain addresses. In this way, you can choose what package to purchase and how much to spend depending on your needs. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current package enables you to, you can easily upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to employ the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit for the number of domains you can register/transfer inside your account no matter the hosting plan that you have picked. Then you can decide if you will host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated packages are really powerful, we have now decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domain names that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is up to you how many domain addresses you'll add and how you will use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no restriction how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you will host within the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting

Our Linux VPS hosting packages can be used to host unrestricted amount of domains irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you pick during the ordering process. You'll get plenty of system resources available, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create a separate hosting account for each and every domain name and we don't have a restriction for the number of accounts you can create. If you choose our Hepsia CP, all domains shall be handled using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option may be more convenient if you do not need to grant access to a particular domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain which you register via Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
