Registering a domain name and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. These are in fact 2 separate services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain names you can accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website data and e-mails for them. Your websites will function in precisely the same way regardless if 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 grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website unless you 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 Hosting
Through our Linux shared packages you will be able to host a different amount of domains, no matter if you register them through our company or with some other service provider. In the event you host only a few domains, you'll probably use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be more affordable. If you choose to add more domain addresses to your account at some point, you can add additional slots using your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade your entire plan and use the added system resources for the new domains. Each of the upgrades will take only a few clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain address are 2 different things, there is no limit on the number of domain addresses you'll be able to register whatever the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you want regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, so it would not sound right to be able to host a limited amount of domains. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia Control Panel, that will give you total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. If you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server solution from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish. You'll have your own server, therefore it's up to you how you will employ its system resources. You will be able to register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domains which you have already registered with another company. Since we offer you three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains from a single location (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 address which you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you'd like to give access to the domains to other people.
