Registering a domain name and hosting one is frequently mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. These are actually two different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domains that one could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site data and email messages for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless of whether the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site unless you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

One of the differences between our shared hosting packages is the amount of domain names you can host in one account. Possessing more domain names with active web sites for them usually means employing additional server resources, therefore, the more domain names you want to host, the more expensive the plan. That way, we give you the chance to choose a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or several web sites. In the same time, you can upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you will not be restricted 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 your choice if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated packages are very powerful, we've decided not to place any restriction on the amount of the domain addresses that you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, not on demand or after some upgrade, it is therefore your choice how many domains you are going to add and how you will use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are handled via our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one location, removing the need to go through different accounts as you will have to do with all other website hosting Control Panels. There's also no limit how many domains you'll be able to register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you will host in the account.
