If you want to create a web site, you need two things - a domain name and a hosting plan for it. The domain registration is the actual web address that you type in an Internet browser to reach a website, while the hosting space is where your website data is going to be. These are two closely connected, yet separate services, while many people believe that registering the domain name is enough. Just like the disk space and the monthly traffic features that a given hosting plan offers, there are a certain number of registered domains which you can add 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 does not matter if a domain is registered and hosted with the same company or is registered with one company and directed to another one - in either case your sites will function exactly the same way.
