If you want to make a website, you need two things - your own domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you type in a web browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website data is going to be. These are 2 very closely connected, yet individual services, even though many people believe that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domain names you can include as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered using a different firm. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - in any case your sites will function exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
When you use Linux shared hosting service you can host a different number of domains, no matter if you register them with our company or with any other company. In case you host only a few domain names, you'll probably use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be more affordable. If you choose to add more domains to your account at some point, you can add extra slots using your web hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and use the added resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades takes only a few mouse clicks and is activated right away. Since registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there is no limit how many domains you can register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they are able to handle is pretty high, therefore it would not sound right to be able to host a limited number of domain addresses. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia Control Panel, which will provide you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domain addresses. In case you register a new domain on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS web hosting service can be used to host unrestricted number of domain names regardless of the hosting CP that you choose during the ordering process. You are going to have 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'll be able to create an individual hosting account for each and every domain and we don't have a set limit for the amount of accounts that you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses will be controlled from one account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second alternative may be more convenient if you don't need to give access to a certain domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to control the domains that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain address you register using Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually after that.
