Registering a domain name and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They are in reality two different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the number of already registered domain addresses you can accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website data and email messages for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain names are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site unless you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
The cloud hosting solutions we offer permit you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can choose what plan to buy and how much to pay depending on your needs. If you want to host more domain addresses in the future than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to employ the registration services of some other 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 like to have everything in 1 place, however, there's no limit on the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer as part of your account no matter the hosting plan which you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is quite high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a restricted number of domains. The accounts are managed through the Hepsia CP, which will provide you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done quickly and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
With our VPS you will get a lot of resources at your disposal and since you are going to have your own server, it's only natural that you can host as many domain addresses as you would like. You can pick from three hosting Control Panels during the signup procedure and depending on your choice there are two different alternatives. If you choose our custom Hepsia CP, all domains hosted on the server are going to be managed together using a single account and newly registered domains are going to be hosted automatically, while if you choose cPanel or DirectAdmin, you will be able to create an individual account for every domain and for new registrations you will have to add the domains manually. The second option may just be more convenient when you have to give access to a specific domain to a third party without giving them access to the entire server or other domains hosted on it.
