The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that one can add in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting aspect is what in fact permits you to have a site because this is where your files and emails are going to be. Since these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one 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 exact same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud website hosting plans that we offer permit you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can choose what package to buy and how much to spend based on your needs. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current package enables you to, you can quickly upgrade the whole plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to employ the registration services of a different company, you will be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains in order to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit on the number of domains you can register/transfer within your account regardless of the hosting package which you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you'll host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they are able to handle is pretty high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a fixed amount of domains. The accounts are handled using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will present you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
