Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a couple of sites which I would like to host out of the same account and each should be accessible by their unique domain name (not out of a sub directory or sub-domain) instead of paying individually for several hosts. Are there any companies out there that allows this (or is this not possible on a technical level?). I am not looking for a dedicated but a shared host.

You could buy a reseller account and create sub-accounts for each domain. There is also the possibility of just using a regular shared hosting account with cPanel as long as the plan offered by the host supports "add-on" domains, in which case they will all sit in your public_html in their own directory.

thanks that didn't occur to me. –  Joe Feb 28 '10 at 18:19
Many hosts will let you share your capacity/transfer among several domains and VirtualHost each in it's own directory as gekkz points out. Just find a hosting provider you like and give them a call (they don't bite, just make the call). –  Chris S Mar 1 '10 at 2:17

Most web hosting company offer such plan. Having multiple sites sometimes mean you may need more support than usual. I suggest you look for quality support above everything, features and price comes next.

We do exactly that using a shared hosting account at PerformanceHosting. We're currently running 6 domains under the one account.

I don't like to promote these guys any more since they were bought out and their service went to hell, but I used www.dotable.com for years and years, and they have multi-domain accounts which permit this.
