When we look through hosting plan package, it will be very attractive. Offering features like unlimited domain hosting, unlimited subdomain, unlimited parked domain etc. And some hosting even offering unlimited storage space and unlimited bandwidth. But our discussion this time will focus on the unlimited domain and its current fact.
After you sign up to a unlimited domain hosting, and when you login to cpanel, you will find out that the statistic on the left hand side will shows 999 addon domains. Plus your primary domain, you are given 1000 domains to be exact.
Its in fact not unlimited, but is limited to 1000 domain name. And each time you adding a new domain name, you will have total less one… 998, 997, 996 and so on. The term unlimited is not so true, and there is limits to this. The same 1000 limit caps apply to unlimited subdomain and unlimited parked domain as well.
Since you can host 1000 domain/website in single shared hosting account, but should you do it? Definitely not adviced to. If you are hosted more than 20-30 websites, your sites are start to slowing down, and might already use up lots of server resource. Soon later you will hit the usage limits and receive warning from the hosting provider.
For static page with no database at the backend, certainly you can have lots of sites running. But for website like wordpress blog, its adviced to keep them below 10 websites per shared hosting account. And not to link them together, search engine like google don’t link links within same IP address.
