Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are in fact 2 different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains you can accommodate in the same website hosting account and have site data and email messages for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless if the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site if you don't host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
Using our Linux hosting you will be able to host a different amount of domain names, no matter whether you register them with our company or with some other service provider. If you host only a couple of domain addresses, you'll probably use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be cheaper. If you decide to add more domains to your account eventually, you can add extra slots through your hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and employ the additional system resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades will take just a few mouse clicks and is activated immediately. Since registering and hosting a domain are 2 different things, there's no limit on the number of domains you'll be able to register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they're able to handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a fixed amount of domains. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia CP, that will provide you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domains. In case you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you get a virtual private server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you want. You'll have your own server, so it's your choice how you will employ its resources. You will be able to register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with another company. Since we offer three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each and every domain which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you wish to give access to the domains to other people.
