The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the number of registered domain names that one can include within the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are two totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting aspect is what actually enables you to have a website because this is where your files and email messages are going to be. As these are two independent services, it is possible to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Also, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to another company and not transferring it.
