If you wish to make a website, you need 2 things - your own domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are 2 closely related, yet independent services, although many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domains which you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are actually registered via a different firm. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - in either case your sites will function exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
Our shared web hosting packages provide a different amount of domain names that one can host in a single account. To have one or a few web sites, you don't need a lot of system resources, so you do not have to buy a very powerful plan and you can start with a lower-end one. If you choose to have more sites at some point, you can always upgrade your entire package or only the hosted domains function of your current plan - it's going to take only a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel to get this done. There is no limit how many domains you are able to register via our company and by selecting the most suitable plan, you can choose how many of them you are going to actually host. If you have domain names that are registered via a different provider, you can host them here as well and use our web and email hosting services for them.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you will be able to host as many domain names as you want no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to limit this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are quite powerful and the load they are able to handle is pretty high, so it would not make sense to be able to host a restricted amount of domains. The accounts are handled via the Hepsia Control Panel, that will provide you with full control over all of your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a few mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, unlike alternative Control Panels where you may even have to switch between separate accounts to control a couple of domains. If you register a new domain address on our end, it'll be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS servers can be used to host unlimited domain addresses irrespective of the hosting Control Panel that you choose during the ordering procedure. You'll get an abundance of resources available, so you can decide how many domains are going to use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you can create an independent hosting account for each domain address and we don't have a limit for the number of accounts that you can create. If you choose our Hepsia Control Panel, all domain addresses shall be managed through a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains like with the other Control Panels. The second alternative might be more convenient if you don't need to grant access to a certain domain to other people and you don't want to switch between accounts to manage the domains that you host on the server. Furthermore, any new domain that you register through Hepsia is going to be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually afterward.
