Yes it’s a domain name you are looking for, one of the three elements need to build a website (the other two being hosting and the actual coded pages of your site)
Anybody selling domains will have a little box where you can enter the name and check if it is available – many of them will also offer alternatives including whether the domain is available with a different extension (.com or .info .net etc…).
I use GoDaddy and 1and1 – you can see what I mean by a check box in this example, there is a 1and1 internet check box here:

*update* just checked and… ‘’ is available…
