The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domains which you can add in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting aspect is what actually enables you to have a website since this is where your data and email messages will be. As these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

One of the main differences between our shared hosting packages is the amount of domain names you can host within a single account. Having more domain names with working web sites for them usually means employing additional server resources, therefore, the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we provide you with the option to pick a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just one or a few sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names within your existing account, so you'll not be restricted by this feature. No matter 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 will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
