What does host unlimited free domains mean?

You often see shared web hosting companies stating "Host Unlimited Domain" but what does this really mean?

Surely you can’t have one shared hosting account for multiple websites?... Or can you?

Some web hosts actually do let you do exactly that! You can have one shared hosting plan, pay one low price but host as many domains as you like.

These are not just pointing to the same site either, you can have host different websites on different domains with some web hosts who claim "host unlimited domains" like eHost and HostGator.

Chances are you probably don’t get additional domains for free, but you can register more domains with your hosting provider which should allow you to easily add them to your hosting plan.

Another option is to create free sub-domains. So if you own example.com you can make a sub-domain for website1.example.com and website2.example.com. These are subdomains and are free with most web hosts.
