What would you like to do?
It's really your choice, but I would recommend not buying the domain name first, if you don't want to pay for it for no reason until you get your site up. On the other hand, getting the domain name is a good way to reserve it. I know some guys who just "collect" domain names. Hope I helped!

The domain name of a Website is what you use to type in the adress bar. Say , every time you go to wiki.answers.com or to google.com , you are typing in a domain name! The in…ternet is made up of many computers that are identified by their IP address , but IP addresses are hard to remember, so domain names just transform those ugly IP addresses into nice easy to remember names :)
