this is a newbie question.
I want to set-up a web site (let call it www.mywebsite.com) on a server I own with a public IP address:
- What is the precise procedure to register the URL? What I mean is, how to tell the world that requests to www.mywebsite.com should come to my server?
- Is this a free procedure?
- I guess I cannot use any name for my URL. What are the rules?
