Unlimited Domain name hosting?

33 replies
Hi everyone,

I'm a total newbie to buying domain names and stuff. I've looked over the forums but can't find the answer to my question.

I want to purchase several domains for my niche. Does that mean i have to buy several webhosting plans as well for this?

Or could i just buy several domains at once and host it with a hosting provider that offers 'Unlimited Domain name hosting'?

I'm so sorry if the question sounds stupid but i'm really lost here. Thanks Warriors!

    Yes you can get one unlimited domain hosting plan and put several domains on it. Check out something like Hostgator's plan.

    You don't have to buy a hosting plan for each domain. Just register the names with the likes of godaddy.com and point them to something like SEDO whilst they are unused.

    Many hosts will allow the set up of multiple domain names when it comes to setting up sites. I'd always suggest that you host somewhere differently than where your domains are stored.

      Hello,
      If you decided to go with hostgator you might want to try some of the following codes. Not too sure if they are still working but these previously got $25 discounts so you get your first month free or $25 off any package

      I wanted to help you check if it was still working but experiencing some difficulty with their sign up process.

      Anyways I wish you all the Best!
      By the way Welcome and I hope you enjoy your stay, it's exciting to have your first site up

    No you don't need to buy multiple hosting, here is what you can do, buy several domain names, then order hosting from Hostgator or other hosting that support multiple domain this usually called add on domain, use one domain as your main domain at Hostgator. Then if you need to add the other domain you have, you can add them through your cPanel hosting under add on domain section.

    Hope that will help you out

      Yup.No need multiple webhosting with several domains. it is a waste when you many hosting for your each domain. You can go to hostagator and look for baby plan where they'll give you Unlimited domains, unlimited diskspace, unlimited bandwidth.

      Hope it helps

      Best Regards,
      Mal

      Yeah, it IS a little known fact(OK, MILLIONS may understand it, but fewer think about it, etc...) that EACH domain name, on the average DNS system, takes as much as .5-4K of disk space! On average, it probably is about 1K(The size of most blocks)! So 1000Names takes about 1GB of disk space, JUST for the names! It doesn''t matter if the name is 1 byte long, or 256 bytes long. The reason is because of how they are arranged in files, they may require as much as 3 files per name, and each file requires .5-4K EVEN if you store only 1 byte.

      The caching system, used to store names from other systems, is simpler and far more efficient, and may store 10s of names in one 1K block. But that can't be used by remote systems as an ongoing DNS system.

      So YEAH, I bet they ALL have some limit.

      A gigabyte may not sound like a lot but if they have 1000 acounts, that is 1TB which IS a lot! And there is overhead, so the 1TB might be closer to 1.2TB. And 1000 names might sound like a lot, but I found one company in DMOZ that had over 40,000 domain names!

    You don't need to buy multiple hosting accounts. Web hosting providers like Hostgator, Bluehost give a chance to add multiple domains. Actually they use word "Unlimited" as a business trick. You better to keep certain number of web sites to use server facilities. Practically you won't be able to create unlimited web sites.

        I have never gone wrong with Namecheap or GoDaddy. I am unable to post links yet so google them

        Personally I like Namecheap the best, they give you a year of whois protection free. They are also incredibly cheap, approx $9 for a .com?

    One thing nobody mentioned...

    If you are creating multiple domains with the idea you are going to use them all to increase the "link juice" for a MAIN SITE where all the money will be made, then using a separate hosting will be needed. When using Multiple domains through HostGator, ThirdSphere, or most other hosting companies, they are really just making them sub-folders and sub-domains from your original root domain. For example, if the first domain name you sign-up with Hostgator is ILOVEMYNICHE.com then the next one you sign-up will be THEYLOVEMYNICHETOO.COM. It's just that in reality it will display as THEYLOVEMYNICHETOO.ILOVEMYNICHE.COM to the search engines in terms of getting backlinks from sites you setup yourself and will all have the same IP address. If you are setting up multiple domains for linking/SEO purposes you have to set them up on different IP addresses (different hosting accounts - or one account where the web hosting provider will let you do this for money) for them to get any recognition from the search engines. Just in case this was your plan and so everyone else knows, too :-)

      I have many domains hosted at Dreamhost* and, just having checked with them, it seems that my domains are not constantly served with an identical IP address. There are apparently times (or circumstances?) when they are, but I just checked, and they are all different this evening. I'll have to check periodically, and see if there ever is a time when they are all (or mostly) identical.



      *I know DH has their detractors. I've had an account there for a year; no complaints so far.

      The other thing that many webmasters don't take into account is Google Adsense. If you use Adsense on your sites, Google ties them all together with your pub number. That's the same as using a single IP for a bunch of your sites.

    It seems everyone likes host gator (and I use it too) because it's one of the best. As for domain names, check out namecheap or godaddy. I personally use namecheap but I heard godaddy is good too (as long as you don't use their hosting plan, as some people have warned me ...)

  • Another good reseller hosting provider is Site5.com. Their plans are comparable with Hostgator.com. I have used their hosting services for a few of my client's domains for almost ten years without any issues. They have lightning fast support and high up-time.

    For unlimited domain hosting, I use Hostgator (mentioned a lot in this thread)

    For domain names, I would recommend NameCheap.

    If you want to pull your eggs in one basket, you could try domains and hosting on GoDaddy. But hosting on GoDaddy has its quirks, so if you don't mind managing your domains and hosting in separate services -- NameCheap for domains, and Hostgator for hosting.

    If you want more features for hosting, I would also recommend Dreamhost -- which is very popular among Wordpress users.

    The advantage of Hostgator over Dreamhost, is that the former uses Cpanel which is pretty much the standard hosting panel in the industry. So if you move to another host using Cpanel, they can do a Cpanel to Cpanel migration.

      I think it's a bad business plan to let your host also be your domain seller. I like to seperate them so in case of issues with a host I can move quickly if I need to.

    Yes. this is entirely possible. I currently use bluehost and have several domains there.

  • Profile picture of the author MichaelAppleton
    HostGator, although you must own the domains you are hosting there. This means if your a webdesigner you will need the reseller account not a standard webhosting account. Although if you own the domain then a standard hosting account will host unlimited domain names.

    Also if you use the coupon code : honestwebhostreview you will get your first months hosting for just $0.01.

    Hope this helps.

    Try Bluehost. You can have unlimited domains for the one price, which is very reasonable and the cPanel is easy to use too.

    I have three host accounts. I keep a seperate account for my continuity programs and then a third for all my other stuff.

    I have a hostgator account running 9 or 10 bux a month with unlimited domains. It works great and the interface is pretty simple for us non-techy types.
