The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two completely different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting part is what really allows you to have a web site because this is where your files and email messages are going to be. As these are 2 independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.
