Let me make sure I am clear. If i plan to host my own domain name all I need to do is:
1. purchase a domain name of my choosing
2. setup my server accordingly to host my site
3. setup an email server to host my mail
is this correct. or do i need to purchase email accounts as well. I was a little confused when i went to purchase my domain name and the site asked me first if i wanted my site to be hosted. then it asked if i would like to purchase email addresses? please someone clarify. it sounds like you would purchase email addresses if you were having them hosted as well but i cannot find anything on the web to confirm.
