    I see everyone talking about cheap domains, Ive only ever bought domains threw my web service provider, but they charge $15 a domain. Is there a way to make purchases from lets say godaddy for example and then move them to my webhost? If it makes any difference this is my webhost: http://www.supremecenterhost.com/ , I have the corporate plan

    Yes all you have to do is change the nameservers on godaddy to point to your new webhost.

    Netfirms has cheap domain names and all you have to do is change the nameservers. Very easy.

    Domain registration and web hosting can always be in different place. You don't need to move anything just point the nameservers (DNS) as Brilli22 said.

    ^This^ and I suggest namecheap over godaddy cause they offer free whois protection and they don't try to push a million extra offers on you when you're trying to buy.

    WHOIS protection I believe is referring to the Private registration, where they don't show your Real name and info in WHOIS.

    If you don't want to list your details (name, address, email, phone number etc) as public then you opt to hide your details through whois protection. However, you can't avail this service on all domain extensions.
