If you want to create a web site, you need 2 things - a domain name and a website 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 closely connected, yet independent services, even though many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan features, 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 if the domains are actually registered using a different firm. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - either way your websites will function exactly the same way.
