The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the amount of registered domains which you could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 completely different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting element is what in fact allows you to have a web site considering that this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. As these are two separate services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying 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. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

One of the differences between our cloud hosting packages is the number of domain names which you can host in a single account. Possessing more domains with active sites for them usually means using additional server system resources, therefore, the more domain names you intend to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we give you the option to select a less expensive plan if you wish to have just 1 or a couple of websites. In the same time, you’re able to upgrade your package or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domain addresses as part of your existing account, so you'll not be restricted 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'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains through the parking function.
