I should have said one more thing.  If whoever is hosting your domain
does not give you control over your DNS, there is no reason you can't
use one of the free DNS services (such as Granite Canyon) or one of
the commercial services such as EasyDNS, to give you control over
your DNS.  You could use EasyDNS for your DNS and Warped.net to host
your domain.
