If you want to create a website, you need 2 things - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you type in an Internet browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your site files is going to be. These are 2 tightly connected, yet separate services, even though many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domain names you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains have been registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and directed to another - in any case your websites will operate the very same way.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
One of the main differences between our cloud website hosting plans is the amount of domain addresses which you can host in one account. Having more domain names with working sites for them usually means using additional server system resources, therefore, the more domain names you would like to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we provide you with the option to choose a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or a few web sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses as part of your existing account, so you'll not be restricted by this feature. Regardless 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'll also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains using the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our semi-dedicated hosting are very powerful, we have now decided not to put any restriction on the amount of the domains you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, it is therefore your decision how many domain names you'll add and how you will employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia website hosting CP that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with other hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you are going to host in the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
If you purchase a virtual private server plan from our company, you're able to host as many domain addresses as you like. You will have your own server, so it is your choice how you will use its system resources. You can register new domain names from the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you have already registered with another company. Since we provide three website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you'll handle all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every single domain name which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is practical if you wish to allow access to the domains to other people.
