Purchasing a domain without Application ( Website )

Wordpress / Godaddy

We are working on developing a blogspot website. We are not sure whether we are going to use MySQL or SQL Server 2008.

I want to register a domain - .com

I am confused on registering a domain.. Do i need to mention whether this application is going to be deployed on Linux or Windows OS ?

Can i randomly register the domain .. like chokka.com without knowing the technology. Can we change the platform after programming is done ?

Correct. Just ignore all the pages trying to get you to sign up for other things and just register the name.

Both of you helped me a lot.

Thank you,
Passing observation, read the fine print very carefully if you go with GoDaddy.  There are some interesting quirks in their contract.

There are other sites that will let you just register the domain name (usually you can get it for no more than about $10 ;-).
