Say you sign up with a host service that "includes a free domain". You get your domain name registered through the service as you sign up for your host account. Do you still own this domain name? Do you have control over it? Say I don't like their service and want to move to another provider down the road, can I move the domain? I tried to read the "fine print" but didn't find anything (yet) that addresses this issue. In the past I have signed up for the host independantly of registering the domain, so I have never come across this issue.
