The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the amount of registered domains that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a web site because this is where your data and emails are going to be. As these are two separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
