The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names which you can add within the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting aspect is what really allows you to have a web site as this is where your files and emails will be. Because these are 2 different services, it is possible to register a new domain name 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 with the same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting packages we provide enable you to host a different number of domain addresses. That way, you can choose what plan to acquire and how much to spend according to your needs. If you choose to host more domains later on than the amount the current package permits you to, you can quickly upgrade the 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 a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers that 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 prefer to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit for the number of domain names that you can register/transfer as part of your account whatever the hosting plan which you have selected. Then you can decide if you'll host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since our semi-dedicated hosting plans are rather powerful, we've decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domains you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, so it's your decision how many domain names you'll add and how you'll use the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other web hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it is your decision how many of them you will host inside the account.
