What exactly are Hosted Domains? What is the difference between a common domain name and a hosted domain name?
Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. These are actually 2 different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the number of already registered domains you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website data and email messages for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless if the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website unless you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
One of the primary differences between our shared web hosting
solutions is the amount of domain names that you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with working sites for them usually means using additional server resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you intend to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the chance to select a more affordable plan if you wish to have just 1 or a couple of websites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains as part of your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your decision if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services
are very powerful, we've decided not to place any restriction on the amount of the domains which you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's your choice how many domains you will add and how you will use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domain names you can register or transfer and it is your decision how many of them you will host inside the account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Hosting
Our VPS hosting services
can be employed to host unlimited domains regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you pick during the ordering process. You'll get plenty of resources to use, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create an individual hosting account for each domain and we don't have a restriction for the amount of accounts that you can create. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names are going to be handled from a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain address and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option may be more convenient if you don't need to provide access to a certain domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to manage the domain addresses that you host on the server. In addition, any new domain address you register via Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually after that.
