Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They're in fact two separate services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain addresses that you can accommodate in the same website hosting account and have site files and emails for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way no matter whether the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website unless you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
The shared website hosting plans that we provide permit you to host a different number of domain names. This way, you can choose what plan to buy and how much to spend depending on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain names later on than the amount the current plan allows you to, you can easily upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to employ the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 spot, however, there is no limit on the number of domain addresses you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting plan that you have picked. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Each semi-dedicated server we offer you features unlimited hosted domains. No matter if you register multiple domain addresses here or you already have them through a different provider, you can include them in the account on our end with only a couple of clicks. If you choose to get a new domain through our company, it will be hosted automatically in the account, so you will not need to do anything else but begin working on the site for it. All of the hosted domain addresses can be managed with ease in one place through our Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast, in case you use rival Control Panels, you will be able to register a domain through one system and host it through another, not mentioning that you have to switch between a number of accounts to regulate a couple of domain addresses. Therefore, Hepsia will save you time and efforts when you manage your hosted domain addresses.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a virtual private server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you would like. You will have your own server, so it is your choice how you will utilize its resources. You'll be able to register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you've already registered with a different company. Because we provide three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name 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're able to create a separate account for every single domain address that you want to host on the server. The last option is useful if you wish to give access to your domains to other people.
