The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names that one can add in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a web site considering that this is where your data and email messages are going to be. As these are two separate services, you can register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact 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 Shared Hosting

Using our shared plans you'll be able to host a different amount of domains, regardless of whether you register them through our company or with an alternative company. In the event you host only a couple of domain names, you will probably use much less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will be cheaper. If you want to add more domain names to your account eventually, you can add extra slots using your web hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the entire plan and employ the extra system resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades will take just a few mouse 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 domains you can register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
