If you want to create a web site, you need two things - a domain and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in a web browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website files is going to be. These are two closely connected, but separate services, while many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given website hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domain names you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains have been registered through a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another - in any case your websites will function in exactly the same way.
