Another way to describe it is that there is always a domain name involved in browsing the web. Having your own domain name makes the web address shorter, and some people think it adds some credibility for a business. There is now some choice in the Top Level Domain portion such as .com, .info, or .biz.
For an example, if you use Comcast cable TV for your ISP (as I do) you could get something like jeepjunky.home.comcast.net for free. If you pay for a domain you could get jeepjunky.biz through any of the registration companies.
Can you hear the silence?
