    I don't believe you can. ICAAN or whatever the authority is called leases out domains, maybe on an annual basis. Even the Evil Empire has to pay regularly. About a year ago they forgot to pay one, and someone noticed and paid for them ($35 US, I think).
    The companies advertising domains buy the domain space themselves and resell it to you. Maybe you can go straight to ICAAN or whoever, but I think they require you to have at least two servers or domain controllers, for backup.

    You have to register a domain and pay annual prices for that domain. Then, unless you have a computer up 24/7 hosting that site, you have to have a company host it fo you. A good one is
