Registering a domain and hosting one is frequently mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They are actually 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature shows the amount of already registered domain addresses you can accommodate within the same hosting account and have website files and emails for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way regardless if the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site unless you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
One of the primary differences between our website hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses that you can host in one account. Having more domain addresses with working sites for them usually means using more server system resources, so the more domain addresses you would like to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we offer you the opportunity to choose a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just one or a few sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names inside your existing account, so you'll 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 using the parking feature.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services are rather powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the amount of the domain names you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it's your decision how many domains you are going to add and how you'll employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it is your decision how many of them you will host within the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
Our virtual private server solutions do not have any limit for the amount of domain names that you can host regardless of the Control Panel that you pick throughout the ordering process. With Hepsia, you are going to be able to handle all domain names in one place and any new domain that you register will be hosted automatically on the server without having to do anything manually. If you get the VPS with cPanel or DirectAdmin, you can choose whether a number of domain names will be accommodated within one account or if every domain is going to be hosted in its own account given that there is no limit how many separate accounts you can create using these two Control Panels. You can register new domain names through the VPS billing area and decide which ones you want to host and which ones to park and forward.
