The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domains which you could add in the exact same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 completely different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting element is what in fact allows you to have a website since this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. Since these are two independent services, you can register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing 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 extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
