Hosted AdSense account

Day by day google AdSense is becoming smart. They have modified and included many terms and conditions regarding AdSense approval and usage of accounts. Before times, we have the option to use hosted AdSense account on Blogspot, youtube and via third party sites, we are using it in site/website. But, now it is totally changed. Now, it is not possible to use hosted AdSense account in websites (Example: www.alltop9.com). See the difference below.
The AdSense account that got approved via the third party hosted partnered sites such as YouTube, Blogspot or Hubpages. That mean if you got an AdSense approval using these third party sites, you cannot use this AdSense account to show ads on any other domain name or site. Adsense hosted account is an account, where you can display ads only on Youtube, Blogspot, HubPages (sites which let you apply for an AdSense and use ad code on that domain itself). This is the actual working of hosted AdSense account as of now.

Non-Hosted (or) Fully Approved normal AdSense Account

Fully approved AdSense is also known as non-hosted AdSense or a normal AdSense account.  Normal Adsense account is nothing but upgrade version of hosted-AdSense account which is approved via non-hosted partnered sites such as sites/domains which are owned by you. Example, www.alltop9.com. This Fully approved AdSense account can be used on any sites/domain which are owned by you.
This is the only difference between the non-hosted or normal AdSense account and the hosted AdSense account.
I hope you have got a clarity between hosted AdSense account and non-hosted AdSense account. If you have any doubts regarding this topic let me know in your comments.
