If you wish to make a website, you need 2 things - a domain name and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website data will be. These are 2 tightly related, but individual services, even though many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan provides, there are a certain number of registered domains that you can add as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even if the domains have been registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain name is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another - in any case your sites will function the very same way.
