The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account denotes the amount of registered domain names which you could add within the exact same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services although a lot of people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration means you become the owner of a specific domain, the hosting part is what in fact enables you to have a site as this is where your files and e-mails are going to be. As these are two independent services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain to a different company and not transferring it.
