The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you can include within the exact 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 ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting element is what actually permits you to have a web site since this is where your files and emails are going to be. Since these are two independent services, you can register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.

Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting

The cloud website hosting plans that we offer allow you to host a different number of domain names. That way, you can pick what package to acquire and how much to spend according to your needs. If you choose to host more domains later on than the number the current package permits you to, you can quickly upgrade your entire package or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you want to employ the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers you have to set for your domains so that you can direct them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the CP on our end. If you prefer to have everything in 1 spot, however, there's no limit on the amount of domain names you can register/transfer within your account whatever the hosting plan which you have chosen. Then you can decide if you'll host them or you will direct them to other existing domains.
