How do I register a domain-name?

ok i have fedora 5 and i have installed all of the nessary files and packages to create an ftp server a mail server and a web server. according to the perfect setup here is the link... ok i have followed this link very closely and configured all of the steps. My question is do i have to register a domain name? and i forgot to metion i have forwarded the ports inside my router setings. is there a way i can just test my page? Ive gotten to the apache test page and it told me i must put content in the var file which i did but it still brings me to that page. So if anyone can help i would greatly appreciate it THANKX!!!!

Moved: This thread is more suitable in <GENERAL> since it's not a Linux-question, and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

I also gave it a more sensible title, because "Help!!" means very little, unless you're a big Beatles fan.

Stanton Finley's howtos include instructions for getting and setting up a domain name.
In (very) short:
Register a Domain (with or .. or whatever service you want)
Edit /etc/hosts, /etc/sysconfig/network, and etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
with the relevant information.
