The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names which you can add in the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting element is what really allows you to have a website as this is where your files and e-mails will be. As these are two separate 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 name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in VPS Servers
Our VPS web hosting plans can be used to host unlimited domain addresses irrespective of the hosting CP that you choose during the ordering procedure. You'll get ample resources at your disposal, so you can decide how many domains will use them. If you get the VPS with DirectAdmin or cPanel, you'll be able to create an independent hosting account for every domain address and we do not have a set limit for the amount of accounts you can create. If you opt for our Hepsia Control Panel, all domains will be controlled from a single account i.e. there will not be a main domain and add-on domains as with the other Control Panels. The second alternative may very well be more convenient if you don't need to give access to a specific domain to other people and you do not want to switch between accounts to handle the domains that you host on the server. Additionally, any new domain name you register through Hepsia shall be hosted automatically on the server without you having to do anything manually after that.
