The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the amount of registered domains which you can include within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services even though many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a site considering that this is where your data and email messages will be. As these are 2 separate services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying 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. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to another company and not transferring it.
