The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domains which you could add within the exact 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 signifies that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting part is what in fact permits you to have a website as this is where your files and email messages are going to be. Because these are two separate services, you can register a new domain name with one company and host it with another one by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It is also important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to a different company and not transferring it.
