Registering a domain name and hosting one is sometimes mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. These are in reality 2 different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature shows the amount of already registered domains that one could accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site if you don't host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
When you use Linux shared website hosting you can host a different number of domains, no matter whether you register them through our company or with any other service provider. In case you host just a few domains, you will probably use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be cheaper. If you decide to add more domain addresses to your account eventually, you can add more slots via your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and use the added resources for the new domain addresses. Either one of the upgrades will take only a few mouse clicks and is activated immediately. As registering and hosting a domain are 2 different things, there's no limit on the number of domains you'll be able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is pretty high, so it would not add up to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia CP, which will provide you with complete control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a few mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domains. In the event you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you would like. You'll have your own server, so it's for you to decide how you will employ its resources. You can register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you've already registered with another company. Because we offer 3 hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to control all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every single domain that you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is practical if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
