Yes, if you want to create a website, it is good to get a domain name. The other alternative you have is to use a hosted website builder that allows you to choose a username and then puts your website on a subfolder or subdomain of their own website/server. Paying the yearly fee for your own domain name and web hosting (can be monthly payments), gets you flexibility and choice of website builder, and access to your website files/content, plus pretty urls – great for SEO (search engine optimization) and working on getting traffic to your website.
