If you wish to make a website, you need two things - a domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your website files is going to be. These are two very closely connected, but individual services, although many people believe that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given website hosting plan has, there are a certain number of registered domains which 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 using a different company. 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.
