    It is hard to say. Some people consider that dashes lower the value of the domain name, others think that it's a better way to separate the words. It all depends on the individual domain name I presume.

    In your example, the domain name is way too long, so it has greater value without dashes. That's my opinion
    Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    Given your example, I would buy woodpencilsharpeners.com and park wood-pencil-sharpeners.com on top of it.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    Yes indeed - always buy the dash version of your domain, if it lends itself to being dashed, and point the dashed domain up to the non-dashed domain.

    if its that long i'd say go without, its already long

    or find a shortcut for it like wpsh.com or even wp-sh.com might be easier
