The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the number of registered domains that you could add within the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 different services even though many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what actually allows you to have a site because this is where your data and email messages are going to be. As these are 2 independent services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the main differences between our shared hosting plans is the amount of domain addresses that you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain names with functioning sites for them means using more server resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you want to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you want to have just 1 or several websites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains as part of your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
