The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that you could include within the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting aspect is what actually permits you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and emails are going to be. Since these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting
One of the differences between our cloud hosting solutions is the amount of domains that you can host within a single account. Possessing more domains with functioning web sites for them means employing more server system resources, hence the more domain addresses you want to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we give you the opportunity to select a cheaper plan if you wish to have just one or a couple of sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain addresses as part of your existing account, so you'll not be limited by this feature. No matter 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 will also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
