    Do I have to do both from the same company? Is it better/cheaper to do so.

    If i only register a name and then find a host, is it free to migrate the domain name over to the Hosting company?

    Any suggestions on who'd be a good place to register and/or host a name?

    You can manage your domains and host seperately and it's probably best that you do. This way if you change hosts, they won't be holding your domain name hostage.

    Basically you buy a domain name with a company like godaddy.com (some people here can probably recommend others). You'll have a control panel to manage your domains and can point them at different servers.

    These servers you point your domain at would be the hosting servers that you rent/buy/whatever. On the servers, you do a little setup to basically say "yes, I'm going to use this domain" and all should work within 24 hours.

    are you still charging 15 to register a name?

    and why are you using commas on your site, instead of decimal point?
