Registering a domain name and hosting one is commonly mistaken by a lot of people to be one and the same thing. They are in fact two separate services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing else, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domains which you can accommodate in the same website hosting account and have site data and e-mails for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way no matter whether the domain names are registered and hosted at the same place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain without hosting it will grant you ownership, but will not allow you to have a website until you host this domain in some account so that records for it are set up and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Cloud Website Hosting
The cloud website hosting packages we provide permit you to host a different number of domain addresses. In this way, you can choose what plan to get and how much to spend according to your requirements. If you want to host more domain addresses later on than the number the current plan allows you to, you can effortlessly upgrade the entire plan or keep the same one and just add more slots for hosted domain addresses. If you choose to use the registration services of a different company, you'll be able to see the name servers you need to set for your domains so as to point them to our cloud platform in the Hosted Domains section of the Control Panel on our end. If you like to have everything in 1 location, however, there's no limit for the amount of domain names that you can register/transfer within your account whatever the hosting plan you have selected. Then you could decide if you'll host them or you will forward them to other existing domains.
