Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. These are actually 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature shows the number of already registered domains which you could accommodate in the same hosting account and have site files and email messages for them. Your websites will work in precisely the same way no matter 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 without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site until you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.

Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting

One of the differences between our shared web hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses you can host in one account. Having more domain names with active sites for them usually means using more server system resources, hence the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the chance to pick a less expensive plan if you wish to have just one or a few web sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domains as part of your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. No matter 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'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are very powerful, we have now decided not to set any restriction on the number of the domains which you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it's up to you how many domains you'll add and how you will employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with other web hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you'll host within the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS

If you get a virtual private server package from our company, you can host as many domain addresses as you would like. You'll have your own server, so it is for you to decide how you will utilize its resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses from the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses which you have already registered with another company. Because we provide 3 hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for every single domain name you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
