The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names that you could include within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting part is what actually allows you to have a website since this is where your data and emails will be. Since these are two separate services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Hosting

The hosting plans we offer enable you to host a different number of domains. In this way, you can select what package to buy and how much to pay based on your requirements. If you choose to host more domain names later on than the amount the current plan enables you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire plan or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to use the registration services of some other company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so as to direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains area of the CP on our end. If you want to have everything in 1 spot, however, there is no limit on the amount of domains you can register/transfer in your account regardless of the hosting plan you have picked. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
