The hosted domains feature of a web hosting account indicates the number of registered domains which you could include within the very same account. Registering a domain and hosting it are two different services although a lot of people consider them to be the same thing. While the registration ensures that you become the owner of a given domain name, the hosting aspect is what actually permits you to have a web site because this is where your data and email messages will be. Since these are 2 different services, you can register a new domain address with one company and host it with another one by changing its name servers (DNS) - the domain address shall work in the exact same way as if it was registered and hosted with the same company. Additionally, it is very important to know that changing the hosting means directing the domain name to an alternative company and not transferring it.
