Can´t we use namecheap.com for web hosting also? instead of using a different web-host?

Or does not namecheap.com offer web-hosting?

Seems easier to me that way.

Hey Jacob,

I'm not sure I understand your question.

You can use whichever hosting company you wish. It comes down to which one will have the services and pricing that fit your needs and budget. Nick mentions a few (of many) in the video that you're linked from, but you are in no way limited to just those. Some do offer better functionality (i.e. Dreamhost is great for WordPress sites), but it will be completely up to you.

Hope that helps. :)

Hey Jacob,

Jason already said it: It's completely up to you which web host you're using to host your site. Namecheap does offer hosting and if it's easier for you to host your website on the same site you have your domain registered at go ahead and host your site on Namecheap. If you want to have more informations about Namecheap's hosting take a look at this site where you should find all informations about hosting and the different hosting options Namecheap offers.
