Registering a domain and hosting one is sometimes mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They are actually two separate services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature reveals the amount of already registered domain names which you could accommodate in the same website hosting account and have website files and e-mails for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way no matter whether the domains are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website until you host this domain address in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the data from that account.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
When you use Linux web hosting you are able to host a different number of domain names, no matter if you register them through our company or using an alternative service provider. If you host just a few domains, you'll likely use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you decide to add more domains in your account later on, you can add extra slots via your web hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the entire plan and use the additional resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades takes only a few mouse clicks and is activated immediately. Since registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there is no limit on the number of domains you can 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 place any limit on the number of the domains you can host if you buy such a plan. This feature is unrestricted by default, not on demand or following some upgrade, so it is your choice how many domains you will add and how you will employ the resources of your semi-dedicated hosting account. The plans are managed via our in-house built Hepsia hosting CP that will enable you to see and manage all hosted domain addresses from a single location, eliminating the need to go through different accounts as you'll have to do with all other web hosting Control Panels. There is also no restriction how many domain addresses you are able to register or transfer and it is your choice how many of them you are going to host inside the account.
