I have one company providing my web address and another providing hosting. Do I change the namerserver box in the address provider to point to my host or vice versa?

Thanks

The website is sitting on the hosts servers so needs to point to them :)

As above, change the nameservers of the domain to the webhosts nameservers. The domain needs to know where your website is, so if you ever change your webhost, you will need to change the nameservers in the domains control panel.

Yes, as above.

If the company you registered your domain name with also provide your DNS, you need to update your DNS records (probably A records for your domain.co.uk and www.yourdomain.co.uk) to point to the servers of where you site is now hosted. Your new web host will most probably tell you what records you need to create and what they need to contain.

As above - you can either change the DNS records to point all traffic to your hosting server (mainly Website and email)

Or, just the ANAME records to the hosting server for just the website leaving the email provision on the Domain names server.

Or even point the MX records to another server to look after the email.
