If you want to create a web site, you need 2 things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you type in a web browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your site files will be. These are two tightly connected, yet individual services, although many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can include as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered via a different firm. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - in either case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

The cloud hosting plans we provide enable you to host a different amount of domain names. This way, you can choose what plan to buy and how much to spend based on your requirements. If you choose to host more domain addresses at some point than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ 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 point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 spot, however, there's no limit for the number of domain names which you can register/transfer inside your account whatever the hosting package which you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, so it would not make sense to be able to host a limited number of domains. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, unlike rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Servers

If you buy a VPS server solution through our company, you can host as many domains as you like. You'll have your own server, therefore it is up to you how you will use its resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses through the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you have already registered with a different company. Because we offer you 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you will manage all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you are able to create a separate account for every domain which you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you'd like to provide access to the domains to other people.
