The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you could add within the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting element is what in fact allows you to have a website as 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 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 with the exact same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
One of the primary differences between our cloud website hosting packages is the number of domains which you can host in one account. Having more domains with functioning web sites for them usually means employing more server resources, therefore, the more domain addresses you intend to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we give you the chance to select a less expensive plan if you wish to have just 1 or a couple of websites. In the same time, you’ll be able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain names within your existing account, so you'll not be restricted 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 forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
