The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domains which you could add in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a web site as this is where your data and e-mails will be. Since these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Hosting
One of the differences between our hosting plans is the number of domain addresses that you can host within a single account. Having more domain addresses with active web sites for them usually means using more server system resources, so the more domain names you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. That way, we provide you with the opportunity to pick a less expensive plan if you want to have just one or several websites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domains inside your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there's 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.
