The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains which you can add in the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting element is what in fact permits you to have a site considering that this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Because these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another 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 exact same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
