The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that one could include within the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely 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 aspect is what really allows you to have a site as this is where your files and e-mails will be. Since these are 2 independent services, you are able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

When you use shared hosting plans you are able to host a different number of domains, regardless of whether you register them with our company or with any other provider. In the event you host only a couple of domain names, you'll probably use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you decide to add more domain addresses to your account at some point, you can add more slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade your entire plan and employ the added system resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades takes only a few mouse clicks and is activated right away. As registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domain addresses you'll be able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a fixed number of domains. 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 address with a few mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain names. In case you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
