Do I have to host my domain name with the same company I registered it with?

You don’t have to host your website with the same company you registered your domain name with.

Changing your web host does involve some technical processes, but either your new web host or your current registrar should be able to help you.

If you’re unsure who your Nominet registrar is or how to contact them, you can use the Nominet WHOIS lookup tool to find this out.
