If you want to create a web site, you need two things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you enter in a web browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are two tightly related, yet individual services, even though many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names that you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are actually registered through a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - in either case your websites will operate the very same way.
