The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names which you can include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting part is what in fact permits you to have a web site as this is where your data and emails will be. Because these are two independent services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
