Yes, you can buy a domain and hosting from two different providers and link them to see the website online. When you purchase the hosting account or domain name they will provide you with a control panel to manage your domain or hosting account. The hosting account provider will send you the nameserver details while you are purchasing the account.

Just use those nameservers and update it in your domain control panel, the panel which is given to you from the domain provider in this case. The nameservers will take some time to propagate in all isp. Hence it will take some time. After that, you can see your website online.

Interesting topic!!

I was in search of a solution for this type of question. I am looking to change my hosting provider and domain is hosted with the same provider.  Now I switched to another provider by updating the nameservers.
