    The website will contain a landing page with few subpages.
    There will be mathematic courses, videos ( hundreds of them ).
    Also a payment system, so people can buy via sms or paypal, or bank transfer.

    What domain provider should I use and what hosting.
    Price doesn't matter. I want it to be the best quality possible.

    It will be professional site and service. Must work godly.

    Any ideas?
    Also to add, the language spokoen on the site will be not in english but in my native language and targeted to people in my country.
    Does it matter that domain and hosting wouldn't be from my country? My guess it doesn't matter at all, but maybe I am wrong and you gonna correct me.

    Domain: I personally use Name.com, Godaddy seems unreliable.
    Server: The very best in the industry are DigitalOcean and linode, among a couple others.
    Video Hosting: Don't host the videos in the same server as your site, it's a terrible practice. There are several services dedicated to commercial video hosting, such as Vimeo Business (highly recommended), amazon web services, etc.

    namecheap , godaddy for buying domain name. Buy premium DNS as well.

    Host on a dedicated server close to your country or in your country as it is going to cater to people in your country mostly.

    Above all Hire a good technician to secure the server.
