Registering a domain name and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They are in fact two different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domains that you can accommodate in the same website hosting account and have website data and emails for them. Your websites will work in exactly the same way no matter if the domain names are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site until you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
Through our Linux website hosting packages you are able to host a different amount of domain addresses, no matter if you register them with our company or with any other service provider. If you host only a couple of domain addresses, you will probably use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you want to add more domains in your account at some point, you can add more slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade your entire plan and employ the additional resources for the new domain addresses. Either one of the upgrades requires just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated straight away. Since registering and hosting a domain are 2 different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domains you are able to register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you would like no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, therefore it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a limited number of domain addresses. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few mouse clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, as opposed to rival 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 name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
