In order to create a web site, you need two things - your own domain and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you enter in a browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are two very closely connected, but separate services, although many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered through 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 pointed to a different one - in any case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
One of the main differences between our cloud web hosting plans is the amount of domain names you can host within a single account. Possessing more domains with active websites for them usually means using more server system resources, therefore, the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we offer you the possibility to pick a cheaper plan if you wish to have just 1 or several websites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains through the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated servers are rather powerful, we have now decided not to put any restriction on the number of the domain addresses that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, so it's your decision how many domains you will add and how you'll employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with all other hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you'll be able to register or transfer and it is up to you how many of them you'll host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server plan through our company, you're able to host as many domain names as you want. You'll have your own server, therefore it's up to you how you will use its resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses that you've already registered with another company. Because we offer you three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you are going to have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you will control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each and every domain name which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is practical if you'd like to allow access to your domains to other people.
