The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that you can add within the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what actually allows you to have a web site since this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are 2 independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Web Hosting
The web hosting solutions we offer allow you to host a different number of domain addresses. This way, you can pick what package to acquire and how much to pay according to your needs. If you choose to host more domains later on than the number the current plan permits you to, you can easily upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domains. If you decide to employ the registration services of some other company, you will be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains in order to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in one place, however, there's no limit for the number of domain names which you can register/transfer inside your account regardless of the hosting package that you have selected. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
