The process of securing a domain name (www.somewebsite.com) is called "domain registration". Once registered, that domain name is the sole property of the owner for a set period of time, usually a year or more. While registered, the owner may "point" the domain name at a hosted website, and anyone who types the domain name into a browser will see the hosted website.
