The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domains that you could add in the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two totally 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, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a site because this is where your files and e-mails will be. As these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Web Hosting

One of the differences between our web hosting plans is the amount of domain names which you can host in a single account. Having more domain addresses with active sites for them usually means using more server resources, so the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we provide you with the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you wish to have just 1 or several websites. In the same time, you will be able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. Regardless of 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'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains using the parking feature.
