Your house has an address (e.g. "42 Wallaby Way, Sydney") so that people can visit you. Your address has a certain ending (suffix), while other people's address may have the same, or a different, suffix (e.g. street, lane, way, avenue, etc.).
Similarly, your website has an address, called a 'domain name'. This is how people visit your website; by entering your domain name into their browser, or by searching for it. Domain names also have suffixes, and different domain names can share the same, or have different, suffixes (e.g. .com, .org, .au, etc.). You can choose what your domain name will be when it's registered; generally something close, or related, to your business name (e.g. "mybusiness.com.au").
You likely have a letterbox at the front of your house so that people can send you mail. When someone wants to post a letter to someone living at your house, they'll address the envelope with the recipient's name, followed by your house address (e.g. "P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney"). If there are multiple people living at your house, they can each receive their own personal mail in this way. An alternative to having a letterbox outside your house is to have a generic postal address, not tied to your house address (e.g. "PO Box 123, Sydney").
To help people to contact you via your website, you'll generally want one or more email addresses. You can use a generic email address (e.g. "mybusiness @ gmail.com"), but that doesn't look very professional. A better option is to have a personalised email address tied to your domain name (e.g. "info @ mybusiness.com.au"). You can also have multiple email addresses; for different people or departments (e.g. "bob @ mybusiness.com.au", "support @ mybusiness.com.au", etc.).
