The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that you can add within the same account. Registering a domain address 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 certain domain name, the hosting element is what in fact permits you to have a site as this is where your files and email messages are going to be. As these are two different services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted using the same company. It is also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
