Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by many people to be the same thing. They're in fact two separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature shows the number of already registered domain names you can accommodate in the same web hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your websites will function in precisely the same way no matter if the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website if you don't host this domain name in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
With our Linux website hosting you'll be able to host a different number of domains, regardless of whether you register them with our company or through any other company. If you host only a couple of domains, you'll probably use less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you want to add more domain addresses in your account eventually, you can add additional slots via your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and use the extra system resources for the new domains. Each of the upgrades will take just a couple of clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain name are 2 different things, there is no limit how many domain addresses you'll be able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our Linux semi-dedicated services are really powerful, we've decided not to set any limit on the amount of the domain addresses you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, so it's your decision how many domains you'll add and how you'll employ the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server package through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish. You'll have your own server, therefore it is for you to decide how you will use its resources. You can register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you've already registered with a different company. Since we offer three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains from a single location (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 each and every domain address which you want to host on the server. The abovementioned option is helpful if you wish to give access to the domains to other people.
