The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that one could include in the very same account. Registering a domain name and hosting it are 2 totally different services even though many people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a specific domain address, the hosting aspect is what actually enables you to have a website as this is where your data and email messages are going to be. Since these are two independent services, you can register a new domain with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain name will work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. It's also very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain address to a different company and not transferring it.
