So you want your own IP (Internet Protocol) address, hooked to your own server.  And when they register it, they register the urls with DNS (Domain Name System) Servers, that simply hook up the IP address (the numbers) to the hostname/url (like www.yoursite.com).  So basically DNS Servers are like internet phone books (see http://www.winnetmag.com/Windows/Article/ArticleID/8666/8666.html ).  See http://www.thefreecountry.com/webmaster/freedns.shtml for info on registering your website with a free dns server.

You must buy the domain name from your country's regulation organ, or thru a domain name dealer. Usualy, when registering a domain one is asked to provide the addresses of two dns that will resolve the domain name, so it's easy to work with a dealer which can provide the two dns asked in the registration process. Verify if the domain name is free.
