Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They are in reality 2 different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain addresses you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website data and email messages 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 without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site until you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
The hosting packages that we provide permit you to host a different number of domains. That way, you can pick what plan to acquire and how much to spend based on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain names at some point than the number the current package allows you to, you can quickly upgrade the whole package or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit on the number of domain names which you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan you have chosen. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Every single semi-dedicated server we provide includes unlimited hosted domains. No matter if you register a number of domain names here or you already have them through a different provider, you can add them in the account on our end with only a few clicks. If you choose to obtain a new domain name from our company, it will even be hosted automatically in the account, so you will not have to do anything else but start working on the site for it. All of the hosted domain addresses can be controlled with ease from a single place through our Hepsia CP. In comparison, if you use rival Control Panels, you will be able to register a domain through one system and host it through another, not mentioning you must switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domains. As a result, Hepsia can save you time and efforts any time you manage your hosted domains.
Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server solution from our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you like. You will have your own server, so it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You can register new domains via the billing account of your VPS or add domains which you have already registered with a different company. Since we provide three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different choices for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you will control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you can create a separate account for each domain which you want to host on the server. The last option is handy if you'd like to provide access to the domains to other people.
