You should get a domain name at Z-Names (http://www.z-names.com ), it's
very cheap and it comes with two options for redirections (on top of
DNS of course), one is plain redirection where anyone arriving on your
domain gets sent automatically to any web address of your choice, the
second one makes a frameset (100%, so it is invisible) and the main
frame loads your web address, but the browser window keeps your domain
name all the time. It is very cheap ($9.99 per year for a .com), and
comes with free email addresses too, so you can really use your domain
Also, you can make subdomains (for free as well), so that
www.yourdomain.com can link to your Google Page for example,
blog.yourdomain.com to your blog, photos.yourdomain.com to your Flickr

want to be using their domain with a free hosting, so this is also an
And with the subdomains, you can also use redirection for a Flickr
account or a Blogger account or a MySpace account, which you can't
really make on your own hosting.
Best thing is to have a choice and as many options as possible (again,
all included in the basic price of the domain. No hidden extras!), and
to also enjoy email addresses @ your own domain name, for life (no
matter if you change job, change ISP, or switch to Gmail for example).
