The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names which you can include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are two 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, the hosting element is what in fact enables you to have a web site because this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are 2 different services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
