Keep Domain without hosting?

Hi Guys,

 

Can I delete/cancel my web hosting while keeping my domain?

 

And if I can cancel it while keeping my domain can I.....

Use FileZilla to set up my website or other software like Dreamweaver?

Will I only have the domain and not be able to edit it?

 

Thanks to anyone who can help and hope it makes sense.

@Keith171 Yes, once your hosting expires and is not renewed you will no longer have access to your website. That's the point of having hosting because it is hosting your website. When you use Filezilla or dreamweaver to edit your site you're doing so on your hosting server, not through your domain name. Think of the domain name as the address to your home and not the home itself. It's just a means of finding the home.

My domain and hosting are up for renewal. Every time I click on my two domains to renew them Web Builder  also goes into the basket even though I did not tick it to renew..  How can I renew my domains without renewing the web builder?
