In order to create a website, you need two things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in a browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your site files will be. These are two very closely related, but independent services, even though many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domains you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains have been registered using a different firm. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - either way your sites will function exactly the same way.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

The website hosting solutions we provide allow you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can pick what package to acquire and how much to spend according to your needs. If you choose to host more domains at some point than the number the current plan allows you to, you can easily upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to employ the registration services of a different company, you will be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in one location, however, there is no limit on the amount of domain addresses that you can register/transfer inside your account no matter the hosting plan which you have picked. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you will direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to place any limit on the amount of the domain names that you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, so it is under your control how many domains you'll add and how you will employ the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with other hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it's your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

If you obtain a virtual private server solution from our company, you can host as many domain addresses as you want. You'll have your own server, therefore it's up to you how you will utilize its system resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses from the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you've already registered with a different company. Because we offer you 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every domain that you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you want to give access to the domains to other people.
