If you wish to make a web site, you need two things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you type in a web browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are two closely related, yet separate services, while many people think that registering the domain is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domains you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains are in fact registered using a different firm. In technical terms, it doesn't matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - either way your websites will function the very same way.
