domain name & pn confusion

I think ive found a good deal with 1&1 ( for 25 *.info domain names free and £1.99/year (Min. 2 year) for * domains.

But this is where I have the confusion

If I setup a domain using the above company can you point this to a subdomain on plusnet? Do plusnet also want paying? or can you only point domains at the root locations ie

What you need to do is move the hosting of your domain to plusnet but leave the billing with 1&1. You can also point a domain to a directory on your www webspace (but not on your cgi or fp webspace).

See the instructions for hosting external domains on plusnet here.

I'm not sure about .info domains though.
