The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domains which you can add within the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting aspect is what really enables you to have a web site since this is where your data and e-mails will be. As these are 2 different services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is extremely 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
One of the differences between our shared hosting solutions is the amount of domains that you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with functioning sites for them usually means employing more server system resources, so the more domain names you want to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we provide you with the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you wish to have just one or a few websites. In the same time, you can upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you'll not be restricted by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your choice if you will also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you want regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they are able to handle is pretty high, therefore it would not sound right to be able to host a limited amount of domain addresses. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will present you with total 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, as opposed to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. If you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
