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