In order to make a web site, you need 2 things - your own domain and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you enter in a web browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are two closely related, yet independent services, even though many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domains which you can include as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered using a different company. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - either way your sites will operate the very same way.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting plans that we provide permit you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to spend based on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain addresses at some point than the number the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade your entire plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to use the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains so as to point 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 location, however, there is no limit for the number of domains which you can register/transfer in your account no matter the hosting plan which you have selected. Then you could decide if you will host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the number of the domain addresses which you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's up to you how many domains you are going to add and how you will employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server plan from our company, you're able to host as many domain addresses as you want. You will have your own server, so it is for you to decide how you will use its system resources. You can register new domain addresses from the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with a different company. Because we offer you three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every single domain name you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is useful if you wish to provide access to your domains to other people.
