How can we help?
You can register a domain with any ISP or Registrar without having to take out hosting with them. At Hosted.com, we provide free DNS hosting, giving you the flexibility to point your domain to a different hosting provider (not URL) if that’s your preference.
Bear in mind, it is not necessary to take out hosting when you register your domain if your website is not ready to go live, unless that hosting includes a Website Builder which you are going to use to build your actual website.
However, should you wish to maintain a professional image from the start, we would suggest that you consider taking out Email Only Hosting so your email communications reflect your domain name.
