>I have just built a site using homestead.com and am now coming to the part where I register my domain name.....fionacunningham.com. If I do this through or via homestead, does that mean they own the name and not me?????

I was wondering the same thing. Some freebie hosts become
the owner of the users domain name. Bet not many people understand that!
You can leave them but your domain is their property.

I was just looking at a free site on Hypermart and they mention
"transferring" an existing domain name to them.
Not sure what that means. Best to phone them. Also check your
listing with Internic to see that you remain listed as owner and
they are merely the technical contact.
