If you want to create a web site, you need 2 things - your own domain name and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your website files will be. These are 2 very closely connected, but separate services, while many people think that registering the domain is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names 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 via a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - in any case your sites will operate in exactly the same way.
Hosted Domains in Shared Website Hosting
One of the differences between our shared website hosting plans is the amount of domains which you can host within a single account. Possessing more domain names with working sites for them usually means using additional server resources, hence the more domains you wish to host, the more expensive the package. That way, we give you the chance to choose a less expensive plan if you want to have just 1 or a couple of sites. In the same time, you can upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains in your existing account, so you'll not 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'll forward them to already existing domains using the parking feature.
