    I know that your webhost can shut down your website if you break their terms & conditions or whatever.... But what about registrars? Is that something that happens?

    Yes they definitely can and it doesn't necessarily take much. Most companies don't like getting complaints so usually if it does happen its from someone claiming you are doing something shady

    They created the domain for you in the first place, so it will be very easy for them to shut down your domain. Have you forgotten the saying that destroying things is easy but creating them is complex.
