The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names which you could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain address, the hosting aspect is what really permits you to have a website as this is where your data and emails will be. Because these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the primary differences between our shared website hosting solutions is the number of domains that you can host within a single account. Having more domain names with functioning web sites for them usually means employing more server system resources, hence the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we give you the opportunity to select a less expensive plan if you want to have just 1 or several web sites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names inside your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
