The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names which you can add in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a site because this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Because these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
One of the primary differences between our cloud hosting packages is the amount of domain addresses you can host in one account. Possessing more domain names with functioning websites for them usually means using more server system resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the opportunity to choose a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just 1 or several sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain addresses within your existing account, so you'll not be restricted by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you will also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains through the parking function.
