The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that one could add within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although some people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what really allows you to have a site as this is where your data and emails will be. Since these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It is also 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

The shared hosting packages we provide enable you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can pick what package to get and how much to pay depending on your requirements. If you want to host more domains in the future than the amount the current package allows you to, you can easily upgrade the whole package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ the registration services of a different company, you will be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit for the amount of domains which you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan which you have chosen. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are very powerful, we've decided not to set any restriction on the number of the domain names which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore under your control how many domain names you'll add and how you'll employ the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with other web hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS

If you get a virtual private server solution through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you wish. You'll have your own server, therefore it's up to you how you will employ its resources. You'll be able to register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domains that you've already registered with another company. Since we offer three web hosting Control Panels for the servers, you'll have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain name 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 can create a separate account for each domain address which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is practical if you'd like to allow access to the domains to other people.
