The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you can add within 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 ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting aspect is what in fact permits you to have a website because this is where your files and emails will be. Because these are 2 separate services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just 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 to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

When you use hosting plans you'll be able to host a different amount of domain names, no matter whether you register them with our company or through some other provider. In the event you host just a few domain addresses, you'll likely use much less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be cheaper. If you choose to add more domains to your account later on, you can add additional slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or upgrade your entire plan and use the extra resources for the new domains. Each of the upgrades takes only a few clicks and is activated straight away. Since registering and hosting a domain address are 2 different things, there's no limit on the number of domain names you are able to register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.
