Basically, every computer connected to the internet is assigned an IP address.
A domain is simply a name, like gaiaonline.com, that points to an IP address. You buy your domain from a registrar.
I don't want to buy a domain?

you can get a free one but it's usally gonna be something like yourdomainname.web44.net and the like
Or I can just use an IP address it seems

What how so? The only thing close to plans are what I posted a page ago

It is just that I keep forgetting to renew my domain and it usually takes like a year or so before the domain stealing bots will stop buying my domain and trying to sell it to me for hundreds upon hundreds of dollars. So until then I can wait fine just using the IP, plus just using the IP I assume means that if I ever use a different domain it will still link to the same places.
