The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the amount of registered domains that you could add in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two totally different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a given domain address, the hosting element is what actually allows you to have a website considering that this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Because these are 2 different services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way 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 address to a different company and not transferring it.
