In order to make a website, you need two things - your own domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in an Internet browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are two tightly related, but individual services, while many people believe that registering the domain name is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domains you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered using a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - either way your websites will function exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
One of the differences between our shared website hosting plans is the amount of domain addresses which you can host in a single account. Owning more domains with active sites for them usually means using more server resources, so the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we give you the option to choose a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just one or a few websites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you'll never be restricted by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains through the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a fixed number of domain names. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will present you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, unlike alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. If you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers can be employed to host unrestricted amount of domains regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering process. You'll have ample resources to use, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create an individual hosting account for each and every domain address and we don't have a restriction for the amount of accounts you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia CP, all domain addresses will be handled using a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you don't need to provide access to a specific domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Furthermore, any new domain name that you register through Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterward.
