As you will only be forwarding unknown requests (such as
www.google.com) to your hosting company, you do not have to deal with
their dns servers at all.

Never really understood using dhcp for fixed ipaddresses, well
possibly for one or two machines, but even then, what is the point ?
I would give a fixed IP to all the machines that should have one
(servers, printers etc). Then for any other machines that can and
should have a dhcp IP (laptops etc), create a pool based around the
fixed machines. This way, you can tell, just from the IP, just what
the machine is likely to be.
