The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account indicates the amount of registered domain names which you could include in the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are 2 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 given domain address, the hosting part is what in fact enables you to have a site since this is where your files and email messages will be. Since these are two separate services, you'll be able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
