The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you could add in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely different services although some people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting aspect is what really permits you to have a website because this is where your data and e-mails will be. Because these are two different services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
Using our Linux shared packages you are able to host a different amount of domain addresses, regardless of whether you register them with our company or using any other service provider. In the event you host only a few domain names, you'll probably use much less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be more affordable. If you decide to add more domain names in your account later on, you can add additional slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and use the additional system resources for the new domain addresses. Either one of the upgrades requires just a few mouse clicks and is activated right away. Since registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there is no limit on the number of domain addresses you'll be able to register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
