The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting element is what actually permits you to have a website as this is where your data and emails will be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting

One of the main differences between our cloud web hosting plans is the amount of domain names which you can host within a single account. Having more domains with active web sites for them means using more server system resources, so the more domain addresses you wish to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we provide you with the opportunity to choose a less expensive plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a few sites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. Regardless of 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 function.
