The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that one could include within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting aspect is what actually enables you to have a website considering that this is where your files and emails are going to be. Since these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting solutions we offer enable you to host a different number of domain names. That way, you can choose what package to acquire and how much to pay based on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain names at some point than the amount the current package allows you to, you can easily upgrade the whole package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 location, however, there's no limit for the amount of domain addresses you can register/transfer inside your account regardless of the hosting plan which you have selected. Then you can decide if you'll host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to restrict this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a limited amount of domains. The accounts are managed via the Hepsia Control Panel, which will present you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a few clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
