The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domain names that you could add within the exact same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 different services although many people consider them to be the very same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting element is what in fact allows you to have a web site as this is where your data and e-mails will be. As these are 2 different services, you are able to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
