If you want to create a website, you need two things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in an Internet browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your site files is going to be. These are two tightly connected, yet independent services, although many people think that registering the domain is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered through a different firm. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another - in any case your sites will function the very same way.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

The shared hosting plans that we offer enable you to host a different amount of domain names. That way, you can choose what package to get and how much to pay based on your needs. If you decide to host more domains at some point than the number the current plan allows you to, you can easily upgrade the entire package or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you choose to employ the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit for the amount of domain addresses you can register/transfer in your account no matter the hosting package that you have selected. You'll be able to decide if you will host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you acquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature since the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they can handle is fairly high, so it would not sound right 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 full control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, in contrast to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between different accounts to manage a couple of domain names. In case you register a new domain name on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
