Three basic things are required to get a website up and running on the World Wide Web.

Third, you need a host. Web hosts are Internet companies that provide the web server space that is required to house clients' websites. Web servers deliver web pages on the request to clients using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

Domain Names

Every website requires a domain name and you should register one yourself (don't let anyone else do it for you). You should own the name rights to your website and not anybody else.

Examples of top level servers that supply domain names are: .com, .org, .net,, and they all vary in prices.
