Registering a domain and hosting one is sometimes mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They're in reality two separate services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains which you could accommodate in the same website hosting account and have website files and email messages for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way no matter if the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give 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 created and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting plans we provide allow you to host a different number of domain addresses. That way, you can pick what plan to get and how much to spend based on your needs. If you choose to host more domain names in the future than the number the current plan allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domains. If you want to use the registration services of a different company, you will 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 CP on our end. If you want to have everything in one spot, however, there's no limit for the number of domains that you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting package you have selected. Then you can decide if you will host them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated servers are very powerful, we have decided not to place any restriction on the number of the domain addresses which you can host if you purchase such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, it is therefore your choice how many domains you are going to add and how you will use the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled through our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel which will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all the other hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it is your decision how many of them you'll host inside the account.
