The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the number of registered domains that you can add within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services although some people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting aspect is what actually allows you to have a website because this is where your data and emails will be. As these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Web Hosting

One of the differences between our cloud web hosting packages is the amount of domains you can host in one account. Having more domain names with functioning web sites for them usually means using additional server resources, hence the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we offer you the option to pick a more affordable plan if you wish to have just one or a few websites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names in your existing account, so you'll not be limited by this feature. Regardless of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you will also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
