The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account denotes the number of registered domains which you can add in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting part is what really enables you to have a site because this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are two separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

One of the primary differences between our shared hosting plans is the amount of domain names which you can host in one account. Possessing more domain names with functioning websites for them usually means employing additional server system resources, hence the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the possibility to pick a less expensive plan if you wish to have just 1 or several web sites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain addresses in your existing account, so you will not be limited 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 your choice if you will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains via the parking function.
