The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a website since this is where your files and email messages will be. Since these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.
