The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you could add in the 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 signifies that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting element is what really permits you to have a web site as this is where your data and email messages are going to be. As these are 2 different services, you'll be able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Web Hosting

Through our Linux web hosting packages you'll be able to host a different number of domain names, regardless of whether you register them with our company or through some other service provider. In the event you host just a few domain addresses, you'll likely use a smaller amount of resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you decide to add more domain addresses in your account at some point, you can add additional slots using your web hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and use the extra resources for the new domain addresses. Either one of the upgrades will take just a few clicks and is activated instantly. Since registering and hosting a domain are 2 different things, there is no limit how many domain addresses you can register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
