If you want to make a web site, you need 2 things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you type in a browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are two closely related, but independent services, although many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are actually registered through a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - in either case your sites will operate the very same way.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
With our Linux cloud website hosting packages you can host a different number of domain addresses, no matter if you register them through our company or using some other provider. In case you host just a few domain addresses, you'll probably use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you want to add more domains in your account later on, you can add more slots via your hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade your entire plan and employ the added resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades will take just a few clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain address are two different things, there's no limit how many domain names you are able to register whatever the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated packages are rather powerful, we have now decided not to place any limit on the number of the domains you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore your decision how many domain addresses you'll add and how you'll use the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our in-house built Hepsia web 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 website hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domains you'll be able to register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you'll host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
Our Linux VPS hosting packages can be used to host unrestricted number of domain addresses irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you select during the ordering process. You are going to have an abundance of system resources to use, so you can decide how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create a separate hosting account for each domain address and we do not have a restriction for the number of accounts you can create. If you choose our Hepsia CP, all domains will be handled using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a particular domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain address you register through Hepsia shall be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterwards.
