If you wish to make a website, you need 2 things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you enter in an Internet browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website files is going to be. These are 2 closely connected, yet separate services, although many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Very similar to 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 if the domains are actually registered through a different service provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - in any case your sites will function exactly the same way.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

The cloud hosting plans we provide enable you to host a different amount of domains. This way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to pay based on your needs. If you want to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade the whole plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you decide 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 as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit on the number of domains which you can register/transfer as part of your account whatever the hosting package which you have chosen. Then you could decide if you'll host them or you will direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, therefore it would not add up to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will give you complete control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, as opposed to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. In case you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server plan through our company, you're able to host as many domains as you wish. You will have your own server, therefore it is your choice how you will employ its system resources. You'll be able to register new domains from the billing account of your VPS or add domain names which you have already registered with another company. Because we offer three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains in one place (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 each domain name you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you want to provide access to your domains to other people.
