    Yes, you'll need somewhere to store the file.

    Okay, can I leave the domain here and host someplace else? Or must I transfer my domain to a hosting site?

    You can point the domain where you want.  A traditional host will give you either a set of nameservers or an IP address.  Just input the nameservers following the steps of the first article, or for an IP address find and edit the A record for Host: @ following the steps of the second article.

    Another option if you were to use a non-traditional method to host the file is domain forwarding.
