The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that you could add in the same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two totally different services even though many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what actually enables you to have a web site since this is where your data and email messages will be. Because these are 2 different services, you'll be able to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It's also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
