The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the amount of registered domains which you could include in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting element is what actually enables you to have a site because this is where your data and emails will be. As these are 2 independent services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting

With our Linux shared web hosting you can host a different number of domain addresses, no matter if you register them with our company or using some other provider. In case you host only a couple of domain names, you'll likely use much less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be less expensive. If you want to add more domains to your account later on, you can add more slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade your entire plan and employ the added resources for the new domain names. Either one of the upgrades requires only a few mouse clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain name are 2 different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domains you are able to register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't sound right to be able to host a fixed amount of domains. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia Control Panel, which will provide you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. If you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
