What does it mean to "register" a domain name?

The Internet domain name system (DNS) consists of a directory, organized hierarchically, of all the domain names and their corresponding computers registered to particular companies and persons using the Internet.

When you register a domain name, it will be associated with the computer on the Internet you designate during the period the registration is in effect.
