What Unlimited Domain Hosting Really Means


When a web hosting provider offers unlimited domain hosting, what does that really mean? In web hosting parlance, unlimited domain hosting is the ability to host any number of domains for one price paid to the service provider. Several websites can be contained in one domain without the customer incurring additional charges for each additional site.

Own the Domain

 

First things first. Before unlimited domain hosting becomes possible, it is necessary to own the domain name. This will entail payment of a fee and this is true for the registration of each and every domain name. The unlimited part comes with being allowed to open the desired number of websites in a particular domain.

 
The succeeding websites hosted in a particular domain will assume the category of a subdomain. The subdomain provides entirely unique content without the need to register a new domain name. This can be a cost-effective way of building a network of associated sites or blogs that can fittingly answer to the same name.

The Downside of Unlimited Domain Hosting

 

Most people will be familiar with the risk of “placing all eggs in one basket”. This pertains to the danger of having all sites under one domain penalized for an issue in one site. This can be very difficult especially if the sites are all monetized and are thus relied on for provision of regular income. Having all sites shut down for example due to a legitimate issue on one site is a dreaded hit that everyone would want to avoid.

 
A lot of site owners with extensive experience in the online world recommend distributing sites to at least 3 website host providers to ensure that other sites will still be running if one is penalized. The same risk is involved in maintaining several accounts with one web host provider and having several sites under one domain. It would be best to think of possible repercussions in sticking to a single web hosting provider.

The Real Meaning of Unlimited

 

The word “unlimited” presents a picture of having no cap on what could be used by the customer. It is often used in conjunction with bandwidth, storage space, or email accounts. Unlimited domain hosting can only go as far as numbers but it does not necessarily follow that the features that should come with every addition will retain its quality.

 
Being unlimited will eventually give somewhere down the line. It will not always be the best option but it can be taken advantage of by select sites and site owners. A clearer picture about web hosting choices can be seen at http://www.besthosting.org/.
