The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a site considering that this is where your files and email messages are going to be. As these are 2 different services, you'll be able to register a new domain name 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 with the exact same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
One of the main differences between our website hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses you can host within a single account. Having more domain names with working web sites for them usually means using more server system resources, so the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the package. In this way, we offer you the opportunity to pick a cheaper plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a couple of sites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you will never 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's up to you if you'll also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains using the parking function.
