The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you could add in the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting aspect is what really enables you to have a site because this is where your data and emails will be. As these are two different services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name 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 name to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting

One of the main differences between our shared website hosting plans is the amount of domain names that you can host within a single account. Having more domain names with working websites for them usually means employing more server resources, so the more domain addresses you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. In this way, we offer you the possibility to pick a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just one or a few web sites. 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 domains within your existing account, so you will not be limited by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
