If you want to make a website, you need 2 things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in a browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site data will be. These are two very closely related, but independent services, although many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domains that you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are actually registered through a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and directed to another - either way your websites will function the very same way.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

The website hosting plans we offer allow you to host a different amount of domain addresses. In this way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to pay according to your needs. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade the entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so that you can point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 spot, however, there's no limit for the number of domain addresses that you can register/transfer within your account regardless of the hosting package which you have picked. Then you can decide if you will host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, we have now decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domain addresses which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's under your control how many domains you are going to add and how you'll use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you'll host in the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a virtual private server solution through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you want. You will have your own server, therefore it's your choice how you will use its resources. You can register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain names which you have already registered with a different company. Because we offer you three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for every domain address which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is useful if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
