Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They are actually two different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains that you can accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website data and email messages for them. Your sites will function in precisely the same way regardless if the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a web site if you don't host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting solutions that we offer allow you to host a different amount of domain addresses. This way, you can select what plan to acquire and how much to spend in accordance with your needs. If you choose to host more domains at some point than the number the current package permits you to, you can easily upgrade the whole package or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you decide to employ the registration services of another company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 location, however, there is no limit on the number of domains that you can register/transfer in your account no matter the hosting package which you have selected. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
As our semi-dedicated servers are really powerful, we have now decided not to put any limit on the number of the domains which you can host if you get such a plan. This feature is unlimited by default, and not on demand or following some upgrade, so it's your choice how many domain names you are going to add and how you will employ the system resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are controlled using our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP which will enable you to see and manage all hosted domains in one place, erasing the need to go through different accounts as you will need to do with other web hosting Control Panels. There's also no restriction how many domains you are able to register or transfer and it's up to you how many of them you are going to host within the account.
