If you want to create a website, you need two things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you enter in a web browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website files is going to be. These are two closely related, yet individual services, even though many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given website 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 if the domains are actually registered through a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and directed to a different one - in either case your sites will operate exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
With our Linux shared hosting packages you are able to host a different amount of domains, regardless of whether you register them with our company or with any other company. In case you host only a couple of domain names, you'll probably use much less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you choose to add more domain names in your account eventually, you can add additional slots through your web hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and use the additional resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades will take just a couple of clicks and is activated immediately. As registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there is no limit how many domain addresses you can register no matter the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our semi-dedicated packages are rather powerful, we have decided not to set any limit on the number of the domain names which you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's your decision how many domain addresses you are going to add and how you will employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed using our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with other web hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain names you'll be able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you will host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS
Our Linux VPS can be used to host unrestricted amount of domain names regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering process. You'll have an abundance of system resources available, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create a separate hosting account for every single domain and we do not have a set limit for the amount of accounts you can create. If you pick our Hepsia CP, all domain addresses will be controlled using one account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option might be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a specific domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to manage the domains that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain you register using Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterward.
