If you wish to make a website, you need two things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you type in a web browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your website files is going to be. These are 2 closely connected, yet independent services, although many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domain names you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - either way your websites will function the very same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
One of the primary differences between our shared website hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses that you can host within a single account. Having more domains with active websites for them means using more server resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you intend to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we provide you with the chance to pick a cheaper plan if you want to have just 1 or several websites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. No matter 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'll direct them to already existing domains via the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, so it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are handled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain names. If you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server solution through our company, you're able to host as many domain names as you would like. You will have your own server, therefore it's for you to decide how you will utilize its system resources. You will be able to register new domain names via the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses which you have already registered with another company. Because we provide 3 web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain name is hosted automatically on the server and you will handle all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for every domain that you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is useful if you'd like to give access to your domains to other people.
