Default CafePress domain name, do i need hosting

Hi im starting a cafe press and want to have my own web address instead of the cafe press/xxxxx one that you get. Ive never purchased a domain and know nothing about buying them. The websites i have checked also offer hosting. Do i need hosting if all i want to do is replace the cafepress URL with a unique name? i'm not very savvy in this area (im more creative) so any info would be much appreciated.

Are you planning on building a separate website besides your cafepress.com/yourstore site?

If you are just planning to point the domain name to your cafepress.com/yourstore site so that when customers type in example.com they go to cafepress.com/example then you don't need hosting.

In that situation, you just need to "forward" your domain name to your cafepress store URL. Most places where you register your domain name offer free or low cost domain forwarding.

You only need hosting if you plan on building a website.
