Registering a domain and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be 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 refers to the amount of already registered domain addresses that one could accommodate in the same website hosting account and have site files and email messages for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way no matter if the domain addresses are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site until you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
When you use cloud hosting you can host a different number of domain names, regardless of whether you register them with our company or through any other service provider. In the event you host only a few domain names, you will probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will be cheaper. If you decide to add more domains to your account eventually, you can add more slots via your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and employ the added resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades will take only a few clicks and is activated straight away. Since registering and hosting a domain address are 2 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
Since our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, we've decided not to place any restriction on the number of the domains that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, so it is your choice how many domain addresses you are going to add and how you'll use the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one place, removing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no restriction how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you will host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers can be employed to host unrestricted number of domain addresses regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you select during the ordering procedure. You will have plenty of system resources to use, so you can decide how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create an independent hosting account for every domain name and we do not have a restriction for the amount of accounts that you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia CP, all domain addresses are going to be handled through one account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you do not need to grant access to a certain domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to manage the domain addresses that you host on the server. Moreover, any new domain name you register through Hepsia shall be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
