The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the amount of registered domains that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two completely 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 aspect is what in fact permits you to have a site considering that this is where your data and email messages will be. As these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
