The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domains that one can include in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and e-mails will be. Because these are 2 independent services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
The hosting solutions that we provide enable you to host a different number of domains. This way, you can select what plan to buy and how much to pay depending on your requirements. If you decide to host more domain addresses later on than the number the current plan permits you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to use the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit for the amount of domains you can register/transfer in your account no matter the hosting package which you have chosen. Then you can decide if you'll host them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in VPS
If you buy a virtual private server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domain names as you like. You will have your own server, so it's your choice how you will employ its resources. You'll be able to register new domain names through the billing account of your VPS or add domain addresses which you have already registered with a different company. Since we offer you 3 website hosting Control Panels for the servers, you will have different options for the hosting part - with Hepsia, a freshly registered domain is hosted automatically on the server and you are going to manage all hosted domains from a single location (i.e. there are not any main and add-on domains), while with DirectAdmin and cPanel you're able to create a separate account for every domain name which you want to host on the server. The last option is practical if you wish to provide access to the domains to other people.
