If you want to host your site somewhere else, select option 3 and follow these instructions:

Hosting with your own service provider:
Copy the site to the webroot of a php 5.2.x enabled web server
* Ensure that the "classes/work/templates_c" directory is writable bythe web server.(chmod 777 classes/work/templates_c on Unix / Linux boxes)

This is a simple as it gets because it's a very technical process! Check out this post, where someone has asked the same question as you:

Please note that if you elect to host your site elsewhere, we can only support you with the process of creating your site, and downloading it. Thereafter all support relating to the hosting of your site will become the sole responsibility of your service provider.

The site you built will always be available in your SynthaSite account for editing and updating even if you download your site as a zipped file and host it elsewhere. However, to put your changes live you would need to re-download your site and re-upload it to the servers of your hosting provider each time. If you host your site with us (either using a free subdomain or a domain of your own) you can update it with a single click - so it is a lot easier to make changes.
