What exactly are Hosted Domains? What's the difference between a standard domain name and a hosted domain name?
Registering a domain and hosting one is commonly mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They are in reality 2 different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domain addresses that you can accommodate within the same website hosting account and have website files and emails for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way no matter if the domain addresses are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not allow you to have a site until you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
With our shared hosting you are able to host a different amount of domain names, no matter whether you register them with our company or using any other service provider. In case you host only a few domains, you'll probably use less system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, that will also be less expensive. If you choose to add more domain addresses in your account eventually, you can add extra slots through your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade your entire plan and use the additional resources for the new domain addresses. Each of the upgrades will take just a couple of clicks and is activated straight away. As registering and hosting a domain address are two different things, there isn't any limit on the number of domain addresses you are able to register no matter the plan you’ve signed up for.
