The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names which you could include within the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting part is what in fact allows you to have a web site because this is where your files and emails will be. Because these are two independent 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 will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting

When you use shared web hosting plans you are able to host a different number of domain names, regardless of whether you register them through our company or through an alternative provider. In case you host just a few domain addresses, you'll likely use much less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will be more affordable. If you decide to add more domain addresses to your account at some point, you can add additional slots via your web hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade the whole plan and use the additional resources for the new domain names. Each of the upgrades will take just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated right away. As registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there is no limit how many domains you can register regardless of the plan you’ve subscribed for.
