The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the amount of registered domain names that one could add within the same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain address, the hosting aspect is what actually permits you to have a web site because this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are 2 different services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Hosting

The cloud hosting plans that we offer allow you to host a different amount of domains. This way, you can select what plan to buy and how much to spend according to your needs. If you decide to host more domain names later on than the number the current plan enables you to, you can quickly upgrade the entire package or keep the same one and only add more slots for hosted domain names. If you decide to employ the registration services of some other company, you'll 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 like to have everything in one location, however, there's no limit on the amount of domains which you can register/transfer as part of your account whatever the hosting plan which you have selected. Then you could decide if you'll host any of them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
