The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you could add within the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting aspect is what really permits you to have a web site because this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are 2 different services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud website hosting solutions that we provide enable you to host a different amount of domain names. In this way, you can choose what plan to acquire and how much to spend according to your requirements. If you decide to host more domain names in the future than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can quickly upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to use the registration services of a different company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit on the number of domain addresses that you can register/transfer in your account no matter the hosting plan that you have selected. Then you could decide if you will host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they are able to handle is pretty high, so it wouldn't add up to be able to host a restricted number of domains. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a few mouse clicks and everything is done quickly and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to manage a couple of domain names. In the event you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
