The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a website as this is where your files and e-mails will be. As these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

The hosting plans that we provide permit you to host a different number of domain addresses. In this way, you can pick what package to buy and how much to spend according to your needs. If you decide to host more domains later on than the number the current plan permits you to, you can easily upgrade the entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 spot, however, there is no limit on the amount of domain addresses that you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting package that you have chosen. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain addresses as you would like regardless of whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are rather powerful and the load they can handle is pretty high, so it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a limited amount of domain addresses. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia CP, which will present you with complete control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a few mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to rival Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. In the event you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
