Registering a domain and hosting one is sometimes mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. These are in fact two different services - the domain address registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature reveals the number of already registered domain addresses that you can accommodate within the same web hosting account and have website data and email messages for them. Your sites will function in exactly the same way no matter whether the domains are registered and hosted in one place or are registered with company A and pointed to company B. Simply registering a domain name without hosting it will give you ownership, but will not enable you to have a website if you don't host this domain in some account so that records for it are created and it starts opening the information from that account.
Hosted Domains in Shared Hosting
When you use Linux shared hosting you are able to host a different amount of domain addresses, no matter if you register them through our company or using any other service provider. If you host only a few domain addresses, you will probably use a smaller amount of system resources, so you can go for a lower-end plan, which will also be less expensive. If you decide to add more domain addresses to your account eventually, you can add more slots through your hosting Control Panel and keep the current plan or upgrade your entire plan and use the added resources for the new domain addresses. Either one of the upgrades will take just a couple of mouse clicks and is activated instantly. As registering and hosting a domain are two different things, there's no limit how many domains you are able to register regardless of the plan you’ve signed up for.
