The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that one can include within the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 different services although a lot of people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain, the hosting part is what in fact permits you to have a web site since this is where your files and emails are going to be. As these are two different services, you'll be able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain name shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
