The hosted domains feature of a hosting account refers to the amount of registered domains which you can add within the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting element is what really enables you to have a site because this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Because these are two 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 address will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
