Registering a domain name and hosting one is usually mistaken by many people to be one and the same thing. They're actually two different services - the domain registration is the actual name and nothing more, while the hosted domains feature refers to the amount of already registered domain addresses you can accommodate within the same hosting account and have site data and e-mails for them. Your sites will work in precisely the same way regardless if the domain addresses are registered and hosted at the same 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 content from that account.

Hosted Domains in Web Hosting

One of the primary differences between our web hosting plans is the amount of domain names which you can host in one account. Owning more domain addresses with functioning sites for them means employing additional server resources, so the more domain names you want to host, the more expensive the plan. That way, we give you the opportunity to choose a less expensive plan if you wish to have just 1 or several web sites. In the same time, you can always upgrade the plan or keep the current one and only add more slots for hosting more domains as part of your existing account, so you will never be limited by this feature. No matter how many domains you host, there's no limit how many domains you can register in your account and it's your choice if you'll also host them or you'll direct them to already existing domains through the parking function.
