The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you can add within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting element is what in fact allows you to have a website because this is where your files and email messages are going to be. As these are two independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting
When you use Linux cloud web hosting packages you'll be able to host a different number of domain names, no matter whether you register them through our company or through some other service provider. In the event you host only a couple of domain names, you'll probably use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be cheaper. If you decide to add more domain names in your account eventually, you can add extra slots via your web hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade the entire plan and use the extra system resources for the new domain names. Either one of the upgrades requires just a few mouse clicks and is activated immediately. Since registering and hosting a domain address are two different things, there isn't any limit how many domain names you'll be able to register no matter the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Due to the fact that our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages are quite powerful, we have decided not to put any restriction on the number of the domain addresses 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 domains you'll add and how you'll employ the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled via our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that will permit you to see and manage all hosted domain names from a single location, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all other hosting Control Panels. Additionally, there is no limit how many domains you are able to register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you'll host inside the account.
