The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the number of registered domains that you can add in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a web site as this is where your data and email messages will be. Because these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
The shared hosting packages that we offer allow you to host a different number of domain names. In this way, you can select what package to get and how much to pay depending on your requirements. If you choose to host more domains later on than the amount the current package allows you to, you can easily upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have 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 prefer to have everything in one spot, however, there is no limit for the amount of domain addresses you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan that you have chosen. Then you could decide if you'll host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
If you buy a VPS server solution through our company, you're able to host as many domains as you want. You will have your own server, so it is for you to decide how you will employ its resources. You will be able to register new domain addresses through the billing account of your VPS or add domain names that you've already registered with another company. Because we provide three hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different alternatives for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a newly registered domain address is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to control all hosted domains in one place (i.e. there are no main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every single domain address which you want to host on the server. The aforementioned option is helpful if you wish to provide access to the domains to other people.
