The hosted domains feature of a website hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names which you could include within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services although some people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting part is what actually permits you to have a web site as this is where your files and email messages will be. Because these are two different services, you are able to register a new domain address 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 very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
