Register a domain and find a hosting company.

Thanks David for reply.
Suppose I dont want to put my application on internet.
I want to do it on my machine only.
So How can I do that?

You edit your hosts file. Though no one outside of your machine will be able to use the application.

Then you'd need to edit their hosts file as well.

Search the web for "hosts file" for whichever OS you're on.

You could update DNS for you LAN. But if its a LAN, why use the www prefix?

Yes, too much trouble for that. Go for 100.100.100.1 and you will be happy! [=
