getting a server

Hey I am new to webdesigning...I have a few questions about getting a server.

-i use dreamweaver and I know I have to get a server for a remote site to upload my files to. I need to get a site that I can get a domain name for, and all that stuff. How exactly does that work?

-when i purchase a domain name and get a server, do they give me all the information and the password and all the stuff to type into the section for establishing a remote site?

-when i get the server, what would i select: ftp, local/network, etc..

-i dont need to get an additional file uploading program like cuteftp or anything if i have dreamweaver right? i assume i can just do the uploading straight on that program

sorry if these questions seem ridiculous, but i really just started learning and if you guys can help me out at all i would be so happy. any advice would be appreciated so much. thanks!

Whoever you register the domain through whether it be goddady, enom or whoever . You will enter your servers name servers to your domains information. This is done in your account on the registars site.

With Dreamweaver and your remote site you can choose FTP. You do not need a seperate FTP program as you can connect with Dreamweaver.

I think I answered everything. It's late and I'm tired so I may have missed something. It's all straight forward and very easy.
ok awesome thanks!

I offer hosting plans in a variety of sizes, for a variety of uses. I can invoice you for hosting and the cost of a domain all in one, and get it all set up and ready to go.
