The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that you can add in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting part is what in fact permits you to have a website considering that this is where your data and emails will be. Because these are 2 independent services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
Using our shared plans you'll be able to host a different number of domain addresses, regardless of whether you register them through our company or through some other provider. In the event you host only a few domain addresses, you'll likely use less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be less expensive. If you want to add more domains in your account eventually, you can add additional slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the entire plan and use the additional system resources for the new domain names. Either one of the upgrades takes just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated right away. Since registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there's no limit on the number of domain names you'll be able to register whatever the plan you’ve signed up for.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you purchase a VPS server package through our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you like. You will have your own server, therefore it's your choice how you will use its system resources. You can register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you've already registered with another company. Because we provide three 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 are going to control all hosted domains in one location (i.e. there aren't any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every domain name which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you want to allow access to your domains to other people.
