Too often new webmasters sign-up with the first good hosting plan they see; they purchased a domain name, built up a site, generated a small income, and decided "Hey, this works, I should make another site". From there the webmasters purchase a new domain and begin working on a new site only to realize that their hosting plan supports only 1 pointed domain; they will have to purchase an entirely new hosting plan for each new domain name.
The number of "pointed domains" a web hosting plan can support is often overlooked by new webmasters. With so many other factors to consider, such as space, bandwidth, price etc. it does not immediately seem important. I will be the first to admit that the first time I ever purchased a hosting plan I did not even consider the number of pointed domains. It did not dawn on me until many months later when I decided I wanted to launch a new website. Fortunately I was lucky and I stumbled into a plan that allowed for 50 pointed domains.
So how many pointed domains should your hosting plan support; in my opinion as many as possible. There has never been an instance where I thought to myself "Geeze, I am never going to have a need for 50 domains that's just a waste". If you are anything like me you are always dreaming about that next big idea, that next big website you are going to build. Don't constrain yourself by choosing a host that cannot support all your dreams.
