The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names which you can include in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two totally different services even though many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting aspect is what in fact enables you to have a web site as this is where your files and emails will be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to an alternative company and not transferring it.
