The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names that one can add in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting aspect is what really permits you to have a site as this is where your data and e-mails will be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting plans we offer permit you to host a different number of domain names. This way, you can pick what plan to get and how much to pay in accordance with your needs. If you decide to host more domain addresses at some point than the number the current plan enables you to, you can effortlessly upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to use the registration services of another company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to direct 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 is no limit for the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer inside your account whatever the hosting package that you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you will host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through 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 have decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they are able to handle is quite high, so it would not add up to be able to host a limited amount of domains. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia CP, that will give you total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
