The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that you could add within 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 given domain, the hosting aspect is what really enables you to have a website since this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Because these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

Using our website hosting plans you are able to host a different number of domain names, no matter whether you register them through our company or through some other service provider. If you host only a few domain names, you'll likely use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you choose to add more domain addresses to your account at some point, you can add additional slots using your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and use the additional resources for the new domain names. Either one of the upgrades requires just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated instantly. Since registering and hosting a domain address are two different things, there's no limit how many domains you are able to register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.

Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers

As our semi-dedicated hosting plans are really powerful, we have now decided not to set any limit on the number of the domain addresses you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, therefore it's under your control how many domains you are going to add and how you'll use the resources of the semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed through our custom Hepsia web hosting CP that will allow you to see and manage all hosted domain names in one place, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll need to do with all other hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain names you are able to register or transfer and it is up to you how many of them you are going to host in the account.
