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

Hosted Domains in Hosting

When you use hosting you'll be able to host a different number of domain addresses, no matter whether you register them through our company or through some other service provider. In the event you host just a few domain names, you'll probably use less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will be more affordable. If you decide to add more domains to your account at some point, you can add extra slots through your website hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and employ the additional system resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades will take just a couple of clicks and is activated immediately. Since registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domain names you'll be able to register whatever the plan you’ve subscribed for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our semi-dedicated servers are quite powerful, we have now decided not to put any limit on the number of the domain names that you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is up to you how many domain names you are going to add and how you'll use the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed using our custom Hepsia website hosting Control Panel that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with other web hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host within the account.
