The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that you could include within the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting part is what in fact allows you to have a web site because this is where your files and emails will be. Since these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

One of the primary differences between our website hosting plans is the number of domains you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain names with functioning web sites for them means employing additional server system resources, hence the more domains you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we give you the opportunity to pick a less expensive plan if you wish to have just 1 or a couple of websites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses in your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you'll also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.
