The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names which you can add within the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting part is what really 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, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
With our shared web hosting you will be able to host a different amount of domains, no matter if you register them through our company or through some other company. In case you host only a couple of domain names, you will probably use much less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be cheaper. If you want to add more domains to your account later on, you can add extra slots through your web hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade the entire plan and use the extra system resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades requires only a few mouse clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there is no limit how many domains you can register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
