If you wish to make a web site, you need 2 things - your own domain and a web hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you enter in an Internet browser to access a website, while the hosting space is where your website data is going to be. These are 2 closely related, but individual services, while many people believe that registering the domain is enough. Similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features which a given web hosting plan features, there are a certain number of registered domain names you can include as hosted which means that you can have the web content for them in some account even when the domains are in fact registered via a different provider. In technical terms, it doesn't matter whether a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another - in either case your websites will operate in exactly the same way.
