Typically what should happen if you drop your webhost they will not longer host your site therefore the site will be "down" when someone tries to goto it.
However there is something you should do on your end:
Who is your domain registrar (ie Godaddy, netfirms, etc) ? If you own the domain then you should be able to log into some kind of admin console. From there you should be able to do something like Park the domain until you are ready to use again. If there is no parking option here is what else you can do.....Depending on how you have this all set up.....if you are doing a redirect versus changing the name server to point to your webhost, you would simply just change this back to your registrars. Your domain registrar (whoever you have your name registered with) should be able to assist you in this.

I can't have it.because going to charge $40 per month and the website didn't make any money. If I can transfer to WA will keep it, Ignite builder will not let me and on different platforms can change to wordpress.

You have to keep paying the domain name fee to retain the right to the domain name. Are you talking about a domain on siterubix?

you don't have the domain name if it is the siterubix...interested as to why you don't want the site, but want the name, this does not seem logical....

You can have a domain name pointed to siterubix, for hosting, so I am trying to figure out if Happy has a siterubix name or a domain name pointed to siterubix. The logic I leave to her, only because I have not had the best luck trying to figure people out.

Some people make a living on domain auctions. You can flip domain names for a decent sum, if it's a high enough in-demand name.

This might be her case.

Or, she may be transferring it to someone else, in due course; I've transferred sites to friends, when I was no longer interested in maintaining them.

Lastly, she may just be taking a break, and will come back to it at a later date.

The reasons could be many. :)
