The hosted domains feature of a hosting account denotes the number of registered domains that you could include in the very same account. Registering a domain address and hosting it are 2 completely different services although some people consider them to be the exact same thing. While the registration means that you become the owner of a specific domain name, the hosting element is what actually permits you to have a web site since this is where your files and email messages will be. As these are two separate services, you are able to register a new domain address with one company and host it with another by modifying its name servers (DNS) - the domain is going to work in the exact same way just as if it was registered and hosted with the exact same company. Additionally, it is extremely important to know that changing the hosting means pointing the domain name to another company and not transferring it.
