The hosted domains feature of a hosting account indicates the amount of registered domains that you could add within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 completely different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration signifies that you become the owner of a certain domain name, the hosting aspect is what in fact allows you to have a website since this is where your data and email messages are going to be. As these are 2 separate services, it is possible to register a new domain with one company and host it with another by changing 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 another company and not transferring it.
