You'll need to add them to your dns server.

Who hosts your domain name?

ah ...

why do you want one?

If you have no domain name then you won't be able to send mail; also, if you're on a dynamic ip 99% of servers won't accept your mail anyway as they will treat it as spam.

do you own abhi.com or did you just make it up because abhi.com is owned by someone in the USA and you are from India. You cannot just use someone elses domain name and expect it to work.
