COUPON CODE: 100Best
How many people do you know that are online and only have one website? Probably not very many. Everybody that I know has more than one website. If you have several websites and you are paying $7.95 per month for each domain, the hosting costs can add up in a hurry. Many hosting companies will allow you to host unlimited domain names on one hosting account.
Benefits of Multiple Domain Hosting
Besides the obvious benefit of saving money by hosting all your sites on one hosting account, there are other benefits. For me the main benefit is only having to learn one hosting control panel instead of several which could have a long learning curve. Multiple domain hosting or VPS hosting puts all of your domains on one server and allows you to manage them much more efficiently. Here's how hosting several domains on one account works. Each VPS user gets their own secure storage space, bandwidth, file system and process space, without sharing CPU load or other applications with any other user on the VPS system. The best part about VPS? You get root access to securely manage your domain server, just as you would with a dedicated server -- but at a much cheaper cost.
Cheap Multiple Domain Web Hosting Companies
VPS or multiple domain hosting is somewhat hard to find. The services that they offer are somewhat specialized and not nearly as profitable as shared hosting. Here are our two favorite VPS hosting companies that specialize in hosting multiple domains.
The GlobalServers team was one of the early pioneers of shared hosting. In 2002 GlobalServers broke new ground with their Virtual Private Server (VPS) offering. Geared more towards experienced webmasters, the Virtual Private Servers gives you the power, security and features of a dedicated server, but with the price and ease of use of a typical shared hosting account. Their basic VPS plan is only $29.95 per month for 10 Gigs of storage, 500 Gigs of bandwidth, and 1024 pop email accounts.
Though Jumpline tends to be more expensive than Globalservers for the resources offered, it a nice system that works very well. Jumpline uses Sphera technology as the basis of its virtual dedicated servers. They offer a competitive package at $29.95, allowing Virtual Dedicated technology to be accessible in a limited manner to those on a budget but are still wanting unlimited domain hosting. The basic domain hosting package allows you to host up to 6 domains on one account.
Our favorite domain hosting company is HostMonster, and the runner up is BlueHost.
