When you give me an alias when I sign up, can I work with that for an extended period [month or two] to create and test website before I change my dns definitionsfor my site at registrar? I assume I cannot do anything about testing email until I change my dns definitions.

Correct. When you signup, have your domain enabled on the account. Then you can configure an "Instant Alias" which will let you test your website.

As for e-mail, you won't be able to test that out.

If you are planning to publish your website with FrontPage, there may be few problem because FrontPage doesn't seem to like Instant Alias in certain cases, depending on what page is being created. I know for sure FP's feedback form won't work with Instant Alias.
