No, you can register your domain name simply so no one else will take it in the future. You do not have to use it or have it hosted by an ISP at the time of registration. Some domain registrars bundle hosting services with the registration of your name, however this is not mandatory. If you register with DOMAINScanada.ca you can host your site anywhere you like, or just keep the name for later use.
