The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that you can add within the same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting aspect is what in fact permits you to have a site because this is where your data and e-mails are going to be. Because these are two independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to another company and not transferring it.
Hosted Domains in Website Hosting
The website hosting plans that we provide permit you to host a different amount of domain addresses. This way, you can choose what package to buy and how much to spend depending on your needs. If you want to host more domains in the future than the amount the current plan allows you to, you can quickly upgrade the whole plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you choose to employ the registration services of another 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 area of the Control Panel on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 spot, however, there is no limit on the number of domain addresses that you can register/transfer as part of your account no matter the hosting package that you have selected. Then you can decide if you'll host them or you'll forward them to other existing domains.
