    Hello,

    I was wondering if I need hosting if im only doing redirects with the domains I have? Also does anyone know if its common to be able to create subdomains through the domain company? Thanks

    I'm pretty sure you have to have a hosting company to do a redirect, unless you find a registrar willing to do this for you.

    Im sure if you can not get a free DNS service it would be cheaper for you to just get a cheap host for the domain and do the redirect from there.
