The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account refers to the number of registered domain names that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 completely different services although many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a certain domain, the hosting part is what really enables you to have a web site because this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are 2 separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
