The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that you can include within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting part is what actually permits you to have a site since this is where your data and emails are going to be. Since these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
Our hosting packages come with a different number of domains you can host in one account. In order to have one or a few websites, you do not need a lot of system resources, so you do not have to purchase a very powerful plan and you can choose a lower-end one. If you decide to have more websites later on, you can always upgrade your entire package or only the hosted domains function of your current plan - it's going to take just a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP to achieve this. There's no limit how many domains you'll be able to register via our company and by picking out the most suitable plan, you can decide how many of them you are going to actually host. In case you currently have domains that are registered via a different provider, you can host them here as well and use our web and email hosting services for them.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you wish no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't add up to be able to host a fixed amount of domain addresses. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with complete control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain addresses. In the event you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
