you need to register a domain name, which you can set to point at your ip. You can change it to another IP, but it usually takes a day or so for the change to go through.

If you have a dynamic IP that changes every reboot/disconnection from internet, you might wanna check out a service like http://www.dyndns.com or similiar. That service will keep your Domain pointer up to date for you.

there are lots of different companies where you can buy a domain name. google "domain registration" and add your country in the search and you should find a company in your country that sells domain names.

Go to a place where they sell domains and buy one?
