Just a question about a domain name

If I set up a DNS server, will I be able to go to and access my website that it on the dns server with apache? I'm just curious because that's what I undersand. I do not want to have to go and buy a domain name because I just don't want to spend the money (I don't have much to spare. All was spent on my linux computer..)

sorry esher2292, there is no way you can have a domain and not go out and buy it. What you can do is have an IP address that will get any user to your website (e.g: will display your site).
See this wikipedia article on Domain name registry for further information.
