The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names which you can add within the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting part is what actually allows you to have a web site since this is where your files and emails are going to be. As these are 2 independent services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting

One of the main differences between our cloud website hosting packages is the amount of domains you can host in a single account. Having more domain names with active sites for them usually means using additional server resources, so the more domains you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we give you the option to choose a more affordable plan if you'd like to have just one or a few web sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses within your existing account, so you will not be restricted by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your decision if you will also host them or you will forward them to already existing domains through the parking function.
