The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names which you can include within the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting part is what in fact allows you to have a website because this is where your files and emails are going to be. As these are 2 independent services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

The website hosting packages that we provide permit you to host a different amount of domain addresses. That way, you can pick what package to buy and how much to spend in accordance with your requirements. If you want to host more domains in the future than the number the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you decide to use the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains in order to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 spot, however, there's no limit on the number of domain names which you can register/transfer in your account whatever the hosting package you have selected. Then you can decide if you will host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We've decided not to limit this feature because the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they are able to handle is fairly high, therefore it would not make sense to be able to host a limited number of domain names. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia CP, which will provide you with complete control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few clicks and everything is done effortlessly and intuitively, as opposed to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domains. If you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
