The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names which you could add in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what really enables you to have a website since this is where your data and email messages will be. As these are 2 independent services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

One of the primary differences between our cloud hosting plans is the number of domain addresses which you can host in one account. Owning more domain addresses with functioning sites for them usually means employing additional server system resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you want to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we offer you the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a few web sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domains as part of your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your choice if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, we have now decided not to place any limit on the amount of the domain names that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or after some upgrade, therefore it is your decision how many domains you are going to add and how you will use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled via our in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP which will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is up to you how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
