The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains which you could add in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting part is what actually allows you to have a web site because this is where your files and email messages will be. As these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud website hosting solutions we provide permit you to host a different number of domain names. In this way, you can pick what plan to get and how much to spend depending on your needs. If you decide to host more domain addresses at some point than the amount the current plan allows you to, you can quickly upgrade your entire package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you choose to use the registration services of another company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 location, however, there's no limit for the number of domains you can register/transfer inside your account whatever the hosting plan which you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you'll host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you want 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're able to handle is pretty high, so it would not sound right to be able to host a limited number of domains. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia CP, that will give you full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to handle a couple of domain addresses. In case you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
