If you want to make a website, you need two things - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you type in an Internet browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are two very closely related, yet independent services, although many people think that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domain names that 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 via a different firm. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and directed to a different one - in either case your sites will function exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
The shared web hosting plans we offer enable you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can select what package to acquire and how much to spend in accordance with your needs. If you want to host more domains in the future than the number the current package permits you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the 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 a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 place, however, there is no limit on the number of domain names that you can register/transfer inside your account regardless of the hosting plan you have chosen. 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 Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you want no matter whether 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 can handle is quite high, so it would not add up to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are controlled through the Hepsia Control Panel, that will present you with total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain with a few mouse clicks and everything is done easily and intuitively, as opposed to rival Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to control a couple of domain addresses. If you register a new domain address on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
