The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names that one could add in the same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services even though many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting aspect is what actually allows you to have a website as this is where your data and e-mails will be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain name 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 same company. It is also important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting plans we provide enable you to host a different number of domain names. In this way, you can select what plan to get and how much to pay depending on your needs. If you want to host more domain names later on than the number the current plan allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade your entire plan or even keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain names. If you decide to employ the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers that you have to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 place, however, there's no limit on the number of domain names which you can register/transfer inside your account regardless of the hosting package you have chosen. Then you can decide if you will host any of them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
