The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains which you could add in the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a web site considering that this is where your files and email messages will be. Since these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
When you use Linux cloud hosting you are able to host a different amount of domains, no matter if you register them through our company or with some other provider. If you host only a couple of domain names, you will probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be less expensive. If you want to add more domains to your account later on, you can add extra slots through your website hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and employ the added system resources for the new domains. Each of the upgrades requires just a few clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there is no limit how many domains you'll be able to register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since our Linux semi-dedicated hosting are quite powerful, we have now decided not to put any restriction on the number of the domains that 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 decision how many domain addresses you will add and how you will use the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our in-house built Hepsia web hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all the other website hosting Control Panels. There is also no limit how many domain addresses you can register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
