If you want to make a web site, you need 2 things - your own domain and a website hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual website address that you type in an Internet browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your site files will be. These are two closely connected, yet separate services, although many people think that registering the domain name is enough. Very similar to the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given web hosting plan features, 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 when the domains are actually registered using a different service provider. In technical terms, it does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the exact same company or is registered with one company and pointed to another one - either way your websites will operate in exactly the same way.
