Does the contract hosting account owns ether that is being sent to contract too??

In ethereum, does the contract hosting account (the account where the contract is deployed to) owns the ether that's being sent to the contract? If not then what if contract gets deleted, does the ether gets sent back or just disappear.

I dont think so. I've done a couple of experiments and I found that the ether stored in contract doesn't belong to the contract hosting account. Coming to your next question, if contract geyts deleted then the eter gets transfered to to the address given in target in case the selfdestruct is called.
