If you wish to make a website, you need 2 things - your own domain and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address which you type in an Internet browser to reach a site, while the hosting space is where your site data is going to be. These are 2 very closely connected, yet individual services, while many people assume that registering the domain name is enough. Much like the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domain names 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 via a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain is registered and hosted using the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another - either way your sites will operate the very same way.
