Default Buying A Domain + Possible Hostin

ok well basicly i made a website for my mate recently and been using a .co.nr domain and he wants a .com or .co.uk domain,

i explained this will cost he said thats fine.

so basicly my first question is if i buy this domain for him but want to host the website myself when i buy the domain will they ask me for an ip address of the destination ?

basicly will it be free domain forwarding ????? like if i buy the domain do i need a way of pointing it to my computer ??

or if thats too much trouble then can anyone suggest a good uk hosting company that sells domain names aswell ? coz if i do it like that isnt all the forwarding and rediredcting done automatically ??

well thats about it i need a domain name. www.ben-jordan.com or ben-jordan.co.uk and im just wondering about redirection or forwarding.

and would love some advice on cheap hosting deals aswell

When you by a domain you need to specify a name server. you either need to run your own dns server or there are some out there that offer this service.

You don't necessarily have to buy the domain and hosting in the same place.

It depends if you really want to host it yourself or pay for hosting
