registers your domain (like cnet.com or abc.xyz) in the whole of Internet, so that's unique and the whole world (well, any Internet user) can access it using that name.

If you're happy with a fixed IP-address you don't need a domain name to be accessible, but most sites do have it, of course.

available service in most routers allows home users to have a domain without needing a static IP address from their internet provider and still have a website that is easily accessible. It's done by checking the IP address assigned by the internet provider each day at intervals and sending that information to a DNS server which updates the relationship of the domain name to that IP address. Sometimes when the internet provider changes the IP given there may be a delay in the domain name being accessible, but based on settings that could be only an hour or two. Most broadband IP addresses though may go for weeks without a change, unless the modem is cycled after releasing the IP address and requesting a new one for some reason. Just some extra gee whiz infor for you.
