The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the amount of registered domains that one could include in the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely different services although many people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting aspect is what actually enables you to have a web site as this is where your files and emails will be. As these are 2 independent services, you are 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 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 another company and not transferring it.
