Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are in fact two different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domain names which you could accommodate in the same web hosting account and have site files and e-mails for them. Your sites will function in exactly the same way regardless of whether the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site if you don't host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the main differences between our shared website hosting solutions is the number of domain names you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain names with active websites for them usually means employing more server system resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we provide you with the chance to choose a less expensive plan if you want to have just one or several sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names inside your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you will also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

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