The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you can add in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting element is what really allows you to have a site because this is where your data and email messages will be. As these are 2 different services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the differences between our shared website hosting plans is the number of domain names you can host in a single account. Possessing more domains with functioning websites for them usually means employing additional server resources, so the more domains you want to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we give you the opportunity to pick a less expensive plan if you'd like to have just one or several websites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you will 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 up to you if you will also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains using the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, we have now decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domain addresses which 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 is your decision how many domain names you'll add and how you will use the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains from a single location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with other hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domains you'll be able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
