If you want to make a web site, you need 2 things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you enter in a web browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your site data will be. These are two very closely related, yet separate services, although many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domain names which you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another - in any case your sites will operate the very same way.
