The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names which you can include within the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services although some people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain address, the hosting part is what in fact allows you to have a site because this is where your files and emails will be. Since these are 2 independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing 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 packages is the number of domain names you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain names with working websites for them usually means employing additional server resources, hence the more domain names you would like to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we offer you the opportunity to pick a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or a couple of websites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains within your existing account, so you'll never be restricted 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 is your decision if you'll also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains using the parking feature.
