Why you have to buy it?
Okay so now you must be wondering why do we have to pay money for it?
Domain name servers house the entire domain names in the world. From this server is where you get connected to the webpage you are looking for. And in turn, who houses the DNS? It will be your internet provider.
And Domain name registries are the ones who update DNS and tell them where your webpage lives on the internet.
Somebody needs to be the ultimate authority on addresses for domain names. If nobody was, then anyone could pretend their servers go to your domain name. Managing domain names takes support people, developers to give webmasters the tools for managing domains, servers, and many other things that cost money.
That’s why you have to buy a domain name, so you can claim ownership and pay for the costs of the services provided by the registry.
