If you wish to create a website, you need two things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you type in an Internet browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your site files is going to be. These are two closely connected, but separate services, while many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domains which you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains have been registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - in any case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

With our hosting plans you can host a different number of domains, regardless of whether you register them with our company or through an alternative service provider. In the event you host just a few domains, you'll probably use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will be less expensive. If you want to add more domain names in your account later on, you can add additional slots using your website hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade your entire plan and employ the additional system resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades will take just a few clicks and is activated instantly. As registering and hosting a domain address are 2 different things, there isn't any limit how many domains you are able to register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll 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've decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, so it would not sound right to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia Control Panel, which 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 very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to handle 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 Servers

If you get a VPS server solution through our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you want. You'll have your own server, therefore it is your choice how you will utilize its resources. You'll be able to register new domains from the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you have already registered with another company. Since we provide 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for each domain name that you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is practical if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
