Registering a domain name and hosting one is frequently mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They are in reality 2 different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domains that you can accommodate within the same hosting account and have site data and email messages for them. Your websites will function in exactly the same way no matter whether the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site unless you host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
Our shared website hosting
packages feature a different amount of domain names that one can host in one account. If you'd like to have one or a few websites, you won't need a lot of system resources, so you do not have to pay for a very powerful package and you can select a lower-end one. If you want to have more sites at some point, you can always upgrade the entire plan or just the hosted domains feature of your current package - it's going to take only a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel to achieve that. There is absolutely no limit on how many domain addresses you are able to register using our company and by picking out the most suitable plan, you can decide how many of them you are going to actually host. If you have domain names that are registered via a different provider, you'll be able to host them here as well and use our web and e mail hosting services for them.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you would like no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they're able to handle is pretty high, therefore it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a fixed amount of domains. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia Control Panel, which will give you complete control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server
plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you would like. You will have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will employ its resources. You will be able to register new domains from the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you've already registered with another company. Because we provide three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you will control all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each domain name that you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is practical if you would like to give access to your domains to other people.
