If you want to make a web site, you need two things - a domain and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you enter in a browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your site data will be. These are 2 tightly connected, but independent services, although many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domains which you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain name is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - either way your websites will function exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
One of the differences between our shared hosting plans is the amount of domain names which you can host in one account. Possessing more domains with active web sites for them means employing additional server system resources, so the more domain names you wish to host, the more expensive the package. This way, we offer you the opportunity to select a more affordable plan if you wish to have just one or a couple of web sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade your plan or keep the current one and only add extra slots for hosting more domain names as part of your existing account, so you will never be restricted by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there is no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your decision if you will also host them or you will direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
