The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names which you could include within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 totally different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting aspect is what actually permits you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and email messages will be. Because these are 2 different services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
One of the primary differences between our web hosting solutions is the number of domain names that you can host in one account. Having more domain names with working websites for them usually means employing additional server system resources, hence the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we give you the option to pick a less expensive plan if you want to have just one or a couple of web sites. In the same time, you can upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain addresses in your existing account, so you'll not be limited 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 forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.
