The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 completely different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting part is what really enables you to have a web site because this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are 2 separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, 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 Shared Website Hosting
One of the main differences between our shared website hosting plans is the amount of domain addresses which you can host in a single account. Owning more domain names with active sites for them usually means using more server system resources, so the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we provide you with the possibility to select a less expensive plan if you want to have just one or a few sites. In the same time, you can upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain addresses within your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your choice if you'll also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that our semi-dedicated hosting plans are really powerful, we have decided not to set any restriction on the amount of the domains which 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 domain names you'll add and how you will employ the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia website hosting CP that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domains you'll be able to register or transfer and it is up to you how many of them you will host in the account.
