What Does Hosting 'unlimited' Domains Really Mean

Aug 17, 2009

I registered and hosted two domains, one for my girlfriend and one for me.

I used GoDaddy, paying around $130 all together at a rate of $5 monthly.

Doing research tonight for a new domain I want to host, I come across "HostGator" which offers Unlimited Domain Hosting. (At around $7 a month)

Does this mean, if I am not mistaken, I could have payed $84 and placed my girlfriend's and my domain on the same hosting server, thus using the same bandwidth and storage space, thus saving a bit of money?

Assuming I am correct up until now, what happens if I get a hosting package that has unlimited storage space, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited domain hosting? That means the only additional cost I'd be paying for hosting a new site would be a basic $10 per year domain registration cost?

I am quite ambitious and have plans for about 3 new domain projects, and I figured I would have to purchase a new hosting account of $60+ yearly for each one. If I could combine these into one hosting account, it would save a lot of money and grief.

Recommendation For Hosting Unlimited Domains

Aug 11, 2008

I have about 14 domains I'd like to host on one server. They combined use about 50gb of bandwidth, 15,000-20,000 unique visitors per month. About 3-4,000 page impressions per day.

I currently use and their uptime sucks, and I keep getting suspended for using to much cpu quota.

Unlimited Domains With Shared Hosting Vs. Reseller Hosting

Apr 2, 2009

This question gets asked a lot in our Helpdesk and I figured I would post our knowledgebase article here to help anyone else wondering the Pros and Cons of Unlimited Domain Shared Hosting vs. Reseller Hosting. If anyone has anything else to add, I appreciate any feedback on how we can improve our KB article.

Given the present state of shared hosting, many clients may ask "Why would I need a Reseller account if I can host unlimited Addon and Parked domains within a single shared hosting account?". There is certainly enough Disk Space and Bandwidth provided in many of today's hosting packages, so why bother to purchase a Reseller account?

Many don't realize the drawbacks of hosting large numbers of domains within a single hosting account until they've already packed tens of them onto a single package.

So how do you know whether a Reseller account or Shared Hosting account is right for you? The answer is in how you plan to provide access to others and how "mission-critical" the sites are. You should consider the following factors when deciding on hosting a large number of domains:

1. Who will be managing these sites?

2. How important is site security between sites?

3. Will these domains need dedicated SSLs?

4. How resource intensive will these sites be (RAM, CPU, MySQL)?

In a nutshell, Reseller plans are for those who wish to host websites for other sub-clients and a shared hosting package is for a single individual managing multiple personal domains. We'll go over the 4 points above in greater detail.

1. Who will be managing these site?

If you personally own multiple domains and wish to host them within the same hosting space, you can easily do so with an Addon or Parked domain. An addon domain will allow you to host a new domain within a subdirectory of your hosting space. A parked domain will allow you to have multiple domain names point to the same content. Since addon domains reside within the same user space as your main domain, you can manage all of your domains with a single login. You can see the problem if you want to provide another user with access. Since all accounts are managed with a single set of login credentials, if you give another user access to their addon domain you are also giving them access to your main domain. If you have vital information stored on your main domain and you are hosting another domain as an addon domain for someone else, you cannot provide them access to their hosting without compromising the integrity of your main domain.

When hosting sites as a Reseller, your clients in turn will want access to their account and will want exclusive rights to their disk space and server resources. With a Reseller account, each sub-account you create gets its own username, password, and isolated user space on the server. Individual clients of yours have access to their user space and their user space alone. In addition to the isolation with regards to access concerns, each account also gets their own cPanel access. All of the same great features that you use to manage your sites can also be given to your clients. Next time client Y wants to add an email account, you don't have to do it for them for fear of giving them access to your cPanel, you can simply give them their login details and they can manage their own email accounts.

2. How important is site security between sites?

This is along the same lines as point 1. This is not necessarily related to who you are hosting for, but what content you are hosting. Imagine that you are a webmaster and you are hosting your own personal site-in-a-box community forums (such as PHPBB or vBulliten) on your main domain and a company website for a paying client on an addon domain. It is not uncommon for popular scripts to have security flaws in older versions. Script authors will often update security flaws in later versions of their software. For this reason, it is very important to keep scripts up to date on your site. But let's assume you forget to update your scripts for a couple of months and an unscrupulous individual takes advantage of a well known security hole. Using this exploit, they gain access to your forums and any subdirectories. Since you are hosting another domain as an addon, they now have access to this domain's content as well. A site defacement on this company's site may not bode well for you when they are considering you for web master services in the future.

If these two domains had been separate into two individual users (i.e. two subaccounts created through a Reseller), their content would've been inherently isolated server side by Linux's user management. Sure, your forums still would've been affected by the security hole, but the break-in would've been isolated to your site alone.

Going back to our example, let's say that instead of a corporate website as an addon domain you are hosting an image gallery site for all of your cats. In this case, it may not be a big deal if a compromise in your main domain spreads to your addon domain. After all, they are both owned by you and you're only losing some time and effort to restore these sites from your local backups (which I'm sure you've actively maintained ). But then again, you are losing time and time is money. If these sites had been separated into individual users, again, you'd only have to restore one site's content.

The idea here is isolation. Reseller plans provide you with the peace of mind to know that if one of your users doesn't keep up with their site's content as actively as they should, their actions won't negatively impact the content hosted on other domains. If you and those you host in your addons are diligent webmasters, maybe this point won't have much bearing on your decision. Only you can say for sure.

3. Will these domains need SSLs?

As of this writing, SSL certificates must have a dedicated IP address to be installed. If you are hosting multiple domains on the same shared hosting package, you can still install an SSL (or purchase a dedicated IP address and install one) but you are limited to exactly one SSL on your account. If you are hosting multiple domains on the same package (and consequently the same IP), you must choose which domains gets to have the dedicated SSL.

Sub accounts of Resellers can each be placed onto separate IP addresses and, as a result, can each have their own dedicated SSL installed.

Of course, both shared accounts and Resellers' sub accounts can use the server's shared SSL free of charge. However, some clients prefer to see their domain in the URL bar when they visit https.

4. How resource intensive will these sites be (RAM, CPU, MySQL)?

We've already established that disk space and bandwidth will be no problem. But what about CPU, RAM, and MySQL resources?

It's important to be aware of the resource needs of your website. As administrators, we have to make sure all users "play nice" on the server. We can't have user X eating all of the CPU cycles computing pi to the trillionth decimal place while you are trying to serve web pages to your loyal visitors. We have to monitor the actions of all of our users and in the event someone is stepping beyond the bounds of acceptable resource consumption, we have to take action. In most cases, this entails disabling the abusive script, but in extreme cases we have to suspend the abusive user account to prevent other domains from encountering performance degradation on their sites.

If you are hosting 100 domains as addon domains, all serving nothing but static HTML pages, maybe you will stay off the radar.

But considering most sites are more complicated than static HTML, you may want to be aware of how many sites you host as addons and what content they serve. If you're hosting the latest and greatest Joomla modules, with up to date news feeds, integrated forums modules, polls, blog posts, etc your site can certainly require a degree of CPU to serve your pages. Now imagine you have 5 or 10 of these sites all hosted as addon domains. The resources these sites need to generate their content can quickly add up and before you know it you've got a friendly email from Acenet, Inc. in your inbox wondering why your user is consuming 2 of the 8 CPU cores on the server. That may be an exaggeration, but you get the idea. In the event your resource usage becomes so excessive that we have to suspend your user, now all of your sites are down instead of whichever one may be the direct cause of the spike in CPU, RAM, or MySQL consumption.

If each of these had been separate Reseller accounts, the offending account could've been suspended temporarily while we work through the cause, leaving the rest of your domains live and kicking.

The conclusion here is that you need to be aware of the needs of your sites in a general sense. Hosting unlimited domains within a shared hosting space is certainly a nice feature. For those webmasters who have multiple presences on the web, it's very convenient to be able to manage all of their personal domains from a single control panel. For those entrepreneurs who are hosting multiple domains for other individuals, the features and security associated with a Reseller plan and the inherent isolation of Linux users is a must have.

Oct 5, 2007

I'm new to Private Virtual Server and the package offered by different company are quite confusing.

I was on RackForce and their basis VPS package dds200-L can host 100 domain names on Plesk and unlimited domain names on WHM/Cpanel.

On 1and1 it didn't say if Plesk support 100 or unlimited domain names. My question is, do we always have the liberty to host unlimited domain names on our PVS?

Can anyone recommend a good VPS hosting company?

Recommended Litespeed/cPanel Host With Unlimited Domains

Oct 6, 2008

I need a VPS with Litespeed, WHM/cPanel, about 2GB of space and unlimited domains. I'm looking for speed and security, not price. Eventually I'd like to upgrade to a dedicated server. Here's what I'm looking for and why:

Located near multiple major networks:
Our current host has been unavailable from certain parts of the Internet. Anonymous proxy shows the site isn't dead, just not responding to my location. The response time from is about 1.5 seconds. That's about average, right?

I run WPMU (Wordpress Multi-User) with many add-on domains pointing to a single installation. Problem with WPMU is it makes extensive use of .htaccess. All user-uploaded files are actually parsed through a php script. That's why I'd prefer litespeed's .htaccess handling.

I don't want to be stuck with a host if they suddenly stop performing. I've heard horror stories about large cPanel transfers, so I'm planning to split this into 3-5 cPanel accounts. Also I want to download my own backups, and don't want to try a 1GB backup. I'm not planning on doing reselling.

2GB of space:
I've got MANY small blogs, but they're all low-traffic. The 2GB is for expansion purposes, and so I can do backups without overage. I should never hit this limit.

Unlimited Web Hosting, What's Next

Oct 31, 2008

the industry is back to where it was about 8 years ago, when only a few companies offering unlimited were labeled as "scam". Now 8 years down the road, most of the large companies offering unlimited everything, but everyone is ok with it.

What is next? How will the competition go on?

Unlimited + Free 2nd Unlimited account.
Unlimited + Unlimited = Unlimited!!
Unlimited + FREE CASH!

How low can these companies go? How will they keep up the competition since there is no more disk space or bandwidth left to compete on. Maybe start free hosting? Start giving out cash to sign up?

If you look at one of those Top 10 hosting web sites, you will see all the companies listed now offer unlimited everything, just different pricing structure. Since they all offer the same thing, wouldn't the person looking just click on the lowest price? Since most people aren't aware of overselling or the unlimited truth, they see it as something that they will never run out of. Average consumer is not aware of these marketing gimmicks.

Honestly if my cell phone provider was offering unlimited minutes for $45 per month, and another one was offering $100 for 1000 minutes my choice would be unlimited. I would even put up with a little bit of crap from the support for $45 unlimited talk time, and a few service outages.

Unlimited Domain Hosting

Feb 27, 2009

A while back I had a hosting service prepaid for 2 years...awful.

They say I can have unlimited domain hosting. But it turned out I can have subdomains that's what they meant. I think its false advertising.

Right now I have a cheap host for $1/month reseller, promise of unlimited domains/bandwidth etc.,

How is it possible to host unlimited domains? Or is this a concept used by everyone to mean unlimited "subdomains"?

how this work? Because I am trying to save cost on hosting and have a reliable service provider. Is it possible in CPanel?

256mb private RAM (not bothered about burst)
5gig space minimum
150 minimum bandwidth (more = better)
public proxies allowed (most vps providers I have contacted don't)
unmanaged (basic support nice but not needed)

Optimizing Server For Proxy Hosting

Mar 21, 2007

i have a Pentium D 820, 2GB Ram at LT where i am hosting a few proxies. Using Centos and Directadmin.

It's realy fast and i am happy with it. The only problem i am facing is that load is jumping up to 60 sometimes but just for a few seconds. Especially when a lot of people are using the proxy and it slows down a bit. That affects only the proxified pages and not a few personal html sites i also host there.

At the moment i am seeing in top that the CPU usage varies from 0,2 to 8, 12, 21 etc but just for a second or two

here is the top output


[root@server ~]# top
top - 12:46:18 up 23 days, 2:36, 1 user, load average: 0.36, 0.44, 0.29
Tasks: 353 total, 1 running, 351 sleeping, 0 stopped, 1 zombie
Cpu(s): 1.2% us, 0.5% sy, 0.0% ni, 98.3% id, 0.0% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 2066668k total, 1297168k used, 769500k free, 53192k buffers
Swap: 2040244k total, 0k used, 2040244k free, 273108k cached

and another output


[root@server ~]# top
top - 12:58:34 up 23 days, 2:48, 1 user, load average: 0.58, 0.39, 0.30
Tasks: 209 total, 4 running, 205 sleeping, 0 stopped, 0 zombie
Cpu(s): 16.9% us, 5.1% sy, 0.0% ni, 77.9% id, 0.0% wa, 0.0% hi, 0.0% si
Mem: 2066668k total, 1100760k used, 965908k free, 53196k buffers
Swap: 2040244k total, 0k used, 2040244k free, 276744k cached

and the number of connections on port 80


[root@server ~]# netstat -an |grep :80 |wc -l
[root@server ~]#

is there any way to tweak or optimize the server so than it can cope better when a lot of people are using the proxy.
