In order to make a web site, you need 2 things - a domain and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you type in a web browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website data is going to be. These are two tightly related, yet separate services, while many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domains that you can include as hosted i.e. you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains have been registered through a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another - in any case your websites will function in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the main differences between our shared hosting packages is the amount of domains that you can host in one account. Owning more domain addresses with working sites for them usually means using additional server resources, therefore, the more domains you want to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we provide you with the option to choose a cheaper plan if you want to have just one or several sites. In the same time, you are able to upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add additional slots for hosting more domains inside your existing account, so you will never be restricted by this feature. Irrespective of how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it is up to you if you'll also host them or you'll forward them to already existing domains via the parking feature.
