Registering a domain 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 more, while the hosted domains feature shows the number of already registered domain addresses that you can accommodate in the same hosting account and have site files and e-mails for them. Your sites will work in exactly the same way no matter if the domain names are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and directed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a site until you host this domain name in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Web Hosting
One of the primary differences between our shared web hosting solutions is the number of domains you can host in a single account. Possessing more domain addresses with functioning web sites for them means employing additional server resources, therefore, the more domains you want to host, the more expensive the plan. This way, we provide you with the opportunity to choose a cheaper plan if you wish to have just one or several web sites. In the same time, you can upgrade the package or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains within your existing account, so you'll not be restricted by this feature. Regardless how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's up to you if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking feature.
