If you want to make a web site, you need two things - your own domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in a browser to access a site, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are 2 tightly related, but individual services, while many people assume that registering the domain is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given website hosting plan provides, 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 when the domains have been registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - either way your sites will function the very same way.
