If your website is going live then yes you will need to purchase a domain name, the github page is a good way to start in as mentioned by Dale Severude, but think about going big with your ideas, if you build many sites and you are selling them put the purchase and renewal of the domain on the clients contract, or give them the project and charge only for the code, then it's on them to review their hosting options. Some hostings sites give you a temporary URL for your site until you get a domain name of your own.

Yes. Domains cost money.
