If you want to make a web site, you need 2 things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address which you type in a browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are two closely related, but independent services, although many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domain names which 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 through a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter whether a domain name is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to a different one - in either case your sites will operate the very same way.
