Registering a domain name and hosting one is often mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They're in reality two different services - the domain name registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the number of already registered domains that you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website data and email messages for them. Your websites will work in exactly the same way no matter whether the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain address without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site until you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Web Hosting

One of the primary differences between our web hosting plans is the number of domain names you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with active websites for them usually means employing more server resources, so the more domains you would like to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we give you the opportunity to pick a less expensive plan if you'd like to have just 1 or a few web sites. In the same time, you can upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domain names inside your existing account, so you will never be restricted by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is your choice if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
