In order to make a web site, you need two things - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you enter in a browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site files is going to be. These are two very closely related, yet individual services, while many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domains that you can add as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains have been registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - either way your sites will function the very same way.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
One of the primary differences between our website hosting solutions is the number of domain addresses which you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain names with functioning websites for them means using more server resources, hence the more domain addresses you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we offer you the opportunity to choose a less expensive plan if you want to have just 1 or a few sites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses as part of your existing account, so you'll never be restricted by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains using the parking function.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domains as you want no matter if you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature given that the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they can handle is quite high, therefore it wouldn't add up to be able to host a restricted number of domains. The accounts are managed using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with total control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain name with a couple of clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domain names. In case you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our Linux VPS web hosting service can be employed to host unrestricted amount of domain names regardless of the hosting CP that you select during the ordering procedure. You'll get an abundance of resources available, so you can choose how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you will be able to create an independent hosting account for each domain and we don't have a restriction for the number of accounts that you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia CP, all domains shall be controlled using a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain name and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second option may very well be more convenient if you don't need to give access to a specific domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to handle the domain names that you host on the server. Furthermore, any new domain you register using Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without doing anything manually afterwards.
