    Home Page:
    Register on Namecheap.
    Then change the name servers to point to whatever host you want the site to run on

    The connection of webhosting with the domain is done through nameservers. When your hosting is active, the hosting company will send you an email with your information. There you can see "nameservers". Just copy them and replace on the domain settings.

    What davids355 and iamLucky said are absolutely right. Purchase your domain on Namecheap and change the nameservers on Namecheap with the Name servers of your web host.
