The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names that you could add within the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a site considering that this is where your files and email messages will be. Because these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
One of the primary differences between our cloud hosting solutions is the number of domain addresses which you can host within a single account. Having more domain names with working sites for them usually means employing additional server system resources, therefore, the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we offer you the option to pick a less expensive plan if you wish to have just one or several sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you'll not be restricted by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
