The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that you could include in the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting element is what in fact permits you to have a site since this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are two separate services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

When you use Linux shared hosting packages you'll be able to host a different amount of domain names, regardless of whether you register them through our company or using an alternative company. In the event you host only a few domain names, you'll likely use less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will be less expensive. If you choose to add more domain names in your account eventually, you can add additional slots through your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade the entire plan and use the extra resources for the new domain names. Either one of the upgrades will take just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated instantly. As registering and hosting a domain name are 2 different things, there is no limit on the number of domains you are able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
