Registering a domain and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They are in reality 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains which you can accommodate in the same web hosting account and have site files and emails for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless if 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 name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website if you don't host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the data from that account.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

One of the primary differences between our shared hosting plans is the number of domains which you can host in one account. Having more domain names with active web sites for them means employing additional server resources, so the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we offer you the chance to choose a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just 1 or several websites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you'll also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, we've decided not to place any restriction on the amount of the domains you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is up to you how many domains you will add and how you'll use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia hosting CP that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all the other hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain names you can register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you'll host inside the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

Our VPS servers can be used to host unlimited domain names regardless of the hosting CP that you select during the ordering process. You'll get ample system resources available, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create a separate hosting account for every domain address and we don't have a set limit for the amount of accounts you can create. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will be managed from a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second alternative might be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to manage the domains that you host on the server. Moreover, any new domain name which you register through Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterward.
