I am in the UK and am interested in buying a .com domain name but wanted to know why some providers sell their domain names cheap. Is there a catch?, if yes, what is the catch.

When you buy from a cheap domain name providers, are you required to do your hosting with them and do you pay a fine if you choose to host it somewhere else.

Reserving domain names is getting less expensive all the time; shop around. Your suspicions may be true for some services so read the small print before you buy.
