If you want to create a website, you need two things - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in a browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your site files is going to be. These are 2 very closely related, yet individual services, while many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains have been registered through a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain name is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - either way your websites will operate the very same way.

Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting

With our Linux shared web hosting packages you will be able to host a different number of domains, no matter whether you register them with our company or using some other provider. In case you host only a few domains, you'll probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you choose to add more domain addresses in your account eventually, you can add more slots through your hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and use the extra resources for the new domains. Each of the upgrades requires just a couple of clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain address are two different things, there is no limit how many domain names you can register no matter the plan you’ve subscribed for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are rather powerful, we have now decided not to place any limit on the number of the domains which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's under your control how many domains you will add and how you'll employ the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled through our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with all the other hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is your decision how many of them you are going to host in the account.

Hosted Domains in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting packages can be used to host unrestricted number of domain names regardless of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering process. You will get an abundance of system resources available, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create a separate hosting account for each domain name and we do not have a restriction for the amount of accounts you can create. If you pick our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain names are going to be managed through a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second option might be more convenient if you do not need to provide access to a certain domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Moreover, any new domain name which you register using Hepsia will be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
