Registering a domain name and hosting one is frequently mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. These are in reality 2 separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the amount of already registered domains which you could accommodate within the same hosting account and have site data and emails for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way regardless if the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site unless you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the differences between our shared website hosting packages is the number of domain addresses which you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with functioning websites for them means using more server system resources, therefore, the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we give you the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or a few sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses within your existing account, so you'll not be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you will also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are very powerful, we have decided not to put any limit on the amount of the domain names that you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is up to you how many domain names you will add and how you will use the system resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one place, removing the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domains you are able to register or transfer and it's your decision how many of them you'll host inside the account.
