The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names that you can add within the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a site since this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are two separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Also, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting

The shared hosting solutions that we offer enable you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can pick what plan to purchase and how much to spend according to your needs. If you want to host more domain addresses later on than the number the current package allows you to, you can easily upgrade the entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you choose to employ 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 point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you prefer to have everything in one spot, however, there's no limit on the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer within your account no matter the hosting package you have chosen. Then you can decide if you'll host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
