Personally, I prefer to register the domain name in one place and get hosting from another. The domain-only places have control panels that let you change it to a different host at will. Whereas if it's tied to the same company that you host with, they can kind of hold it hostage by charging you fees before they'll let it go. This can be a real problem if, say, you outgrow your hosting package or they have technical problems and you want to move elsewhere.

I use or for my domains. On the whole I prefer 123. Presently I have my hosting through Hostrocket. They're fine, but you might be able to do better.
