Domain & hosting separation


Just a quick post, I just read about this myself somewhere else but can't find the link although that post just mentioned it in passing. The basics of it is to keep the company you have your domain hosted with and the place where your website is actually hosted separate as that way if someone hacks one of them they haven't got access to everything.

I've always done this but I've never thought of it from a security perspective, I've always wanted it them separated encase I want to change hosting provider (I've had a few bad ones) that way they have no control over my domain if they get awkward.

I've got another post lined up about Wordpress v3.5.1 which will hopefully be done soon, but researching into all the changes is taking more time than I thought!
