Registering a domain and hosting one is usually mistaken by a lot of people to be the same thing. They're in fact 2 separate services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domain addresses which you could accommodate in the same hosting account and have site files and email messages for them. Your sites will function in exactly the same way regardless of 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 site if you don't 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 Website Hosting
Using our website hosting you are able to host a different amount of domain names, no matter if you register them through our company or with an alternative provider. If you host only a couple of domain names, you'll probably use less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you decide to add more domains in your account later on, you can add extra slots through your hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and use the extra resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades will take just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated straight away. Since registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there's no limit how many domain addresses you can register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
Hosted Domains in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan through our company, you'll be able to host as many domains as you wish no matter whether you register them here or you already own them through a different company. We have decided not to restrict this feature as the semi-dedicated plans are very powerful and the load they're able to handle is pretty high, so it wouldn't make sense to be able to host a limited amount of domain names. The accounts are controlled using the Hepsia Control Panel, that will give you total control over your hosted domains. You can add a new domain address with a couple of mouse clicks and everything is done very easily and intuitively, as opposed to alternative Control Panels where you might even have to switch between separate accounts to handle a couple of domain addresses. In the event you register a new domain name on our end, it will be hosted automatically in your semi-dedicated account.
