How Many Websites You Can Host With Shared Hosting?
When setting up websites, you can use addon domains and/or subdomains. It’s important to understand the differences between an addon domain and a subdomain.
- An addon domain is a completely unique website with its own domain (like example.com).
- A subdomain is a separate website that shares a domain with an addon domain (like blog.example.com).
Think of addon domains as your main websites, and subdomains as extensions. You can use subdomains for the following websites:
- A blog
- eCommerce Store
- Any business-relevant website that compliments the main website.
After understanding domains and subdomains, we can explain the number of websites per plan. Per the chart below, the Launch plan allows for two main domains and 25 subdomains. Launch plan users can have two main websites with unique domain names. These users can also have 25 subdomains that attach to one of the main websites.
The Pro plan, most popular, has no limit to the number of websites a user can create. This also means that there is no limit to the number of domains and subdomains a user can create.
|2 websites||6 websites||Unlimited|
|25 subdomains||100 subdomains||Unlimited|
Advantages of Hosting Multiple Sites
Before signing up for a Shared Hosting account, first, identify the number of websites your business needs. You may find yourself wanting to set up a blog or eCommerce store on a subdomain for an existing website. Hosting many websites can be lucrative if you have the time and resources. For example, many full-time bloggers supplement their income by hosting many blogs. You could also host different eCommerce stores for different businesses/websites.
