I registered my domain before selecting a hosting service, so I am the account
holder, admin contact and tech contact, with alternate email addresses for each
(if you do this, don't make all your contact emails addresses on the same domain
that you are registering, because if something goes wrong the registrar will
have no way of contacting you). My hosting provider has no login access to my
domain account, so if changes have to be made to the domain (for example, if the
default IP of my hosting account changes for technical reasons) the hosting
provider notifies me and I log into NS and update the domain pointers manually.

Good host/register companies will put your name on the domain record
as the Administrative Contact so that you can change hosts whenever
you want. (We do. We've had to help way too many customers who never
got control of their own domain names and there are a lot of hoops to
jump through at that point to get everything set up correctly.)

But it can be hard to tell if companies do this. You can ask them
ahead of time if you will be listed as Admin Contact, but that doesn't
mean that they'll honor it. (If you know some other websites that they
host, you can use whois.com to see who is listed in the various
positions.) So Gene's idea of keeping them separate is a good idea.
