If you wish to create a web site, you need 2 things - a domain name and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in a browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are 2 very closely connected, yet individual services, although many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domain names you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains have been registered through a different company. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and directed to a different one - in any case your websites will operate exactly the same way.

Hosted Domains in Website Hosting

When you use Linux website hosting packages you can host a different number of domains, regardless of whether you register them with our company or with an alternative company. If you host just a few domain names, you'll probably use less resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be cheaper. If you decide to add more domains to your account eventually, you can add more slots using your website hosting CP and keep the current plan or you can upgrade the whole plan and employ the added system resources for the new domains. Either one of the upgrades requires only a few mouse clicks and is activated straight away. Since registering and hosting a domain name are two different things, there is no limit how many domains you'll be able to register whatever the plan you’ve subscribed for.
