The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names that one can include in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two different services although some people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a web site as this is where your data and e-mails will be. As these are two different services, you can register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain 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 domains. This way, you can select what plan to buy and how much to pay based on your needs. If you choose to host more domain addresses in the future than the number the current plan enables you to, you can easily upgrade the entire plan or even keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain names. If you choose to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains in order to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one spot, however, there's no limit on the number of domains you can register/transfer within your account whatever the hosting plan which you have picked. You'll be able to decide if you will host them or you'll direct them to other existing domains.
