    I have a pretty basic question for probably most of you on this forum, but I appreciate your expert advise.

    Question: If I register the domain name of my business, with let's say GoDaddy, but want to host the site with someone else - Is that a good idea? Does it matter who I register with vers host with?

    Thanks so much for your time

    There's nothing wrong with that whatsoever. Many companies do this. They register with a company but host it themselves for instance. Just make sure you are actually registering it under your name and not the name of the registrar (private registration is ok). Always go with a reputable registrar.

    It doesn't matter who you register or host with. You can point the domain where you need it hosted at. very simple.

    Yes, you can simply get the domain with any registrar and host a domain with any hosting provider by just updating the name servers at your registrar end.
