The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that you can include within the same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two totally different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting part is what in fact permits you to have a website as this is where your files and e-mails will be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
With our shared hosting you are able to host a different number of domains, no matter whether you register them with our company or using any other company. If you host only a couple of domains, you will probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be more affordable. If you want to add more domain names to your account eventually, you can add additional slots using your hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the entire plan and use the additional system resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades takes only a few mouse clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain address are 2 different things, there's no limit how many domains you can register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you wish regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is quite high, therefore it would not add up to be able to host a limited number of domains. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia CP, that will present you with full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, unlike alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domains. In case you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
