    Sure, you can. Find so called domain registar or an webhosting company.
    After domain is registered, you can then configure your domain and point it to different hosting provider. This is done by modiffying so called nameservers. Your hosting provider will give you nameservers that you need to set for your domain.

    Yes you can purchase domain from any website and you do not need to buy their hosting plans. You can choose any other hosting provider just make few changes and your domain will start running on different hosting server.

    Domain name and hosting account are 2 different things ... Domain can be purchased from any registrar or a hosting company provides domain registration services as well as hosting can be purchased from any hosting company and domain registrar if the domain registrar is providing hosting service.

    Yes. you can. If you want to get full control over the domain and its management then choose a domain name registration service that is separated from web hosting.

    Absolutely you can get a domain before you purchase hosting. You can either get them both from the same company, or different companies, one for hosting and one for domain registration. Either way you'll want to do some research into your domain registrar and make sure they are reputable.

    Yes, you may purchase a domain name without purchasing a hosting plan. There are many big domain registrars that you can choose from. In fact, many people buy domain names, similar to their own or with different extensions, so they make sure no one else can take them. In this way, they prevent any potential harm to their website (if someone has a domain name that is similar to your, they may steal customers from you, etc.)

    This is a really good idea, as reliable hosting is very important. Of all the services that I used the most stable hosting- https://hostovita.pl/hosting/
