    Question quick newbie questions

    I've finally found a domain name I like that is available.

    I want to register it and get a host.

    I've tentatively decided on registering it with namecheap and hosting with site5.

    So, I do this:
    1. register domain at namecheap.
    2. sign up for hosting at site5.
    3. give site5 my domain/dns info from namecheap.
    4. create/upload website, etc.

    Is this how it works?

    I can figure the details out, but wanted to make sure I have the basic process correct before putting out money.

    justwannahelp,

    Exactly! although you'll have to put your DNS information at namecheap, not give it to site5.

    i.e. you'll login to namecheap and setup your domain to point at site5.

    Simple enough!

    When you register your domain, make sure you put in a working and correct email that you always have access to. This email will ultimately control ownership over the domain so if you lose it, you lose the domain.

    And oh yeah, don't expect your domain to work immediately. After entering your webhost dns into namecheap, give it some time for DNS propagation.
