Many web denizens will tell you authors need their own domain(s): Some think your actual name (real or pen) should be what you rent; others feel the domain address(es) should be for each book. Your domain can be hosted through your ISP or elsewhere online. This can be done a number of different ways, including contracting with a web designer to do the site, as well as getting your domain set up with a bit of research online. Blogs and social network pages are also fairly easy, user friendly ways to put yourself and your book online without going "whole hog".
This bears saying again: Addresses can be important if people are looking for you or your book and don't remember a lot about it. Even the best efforts to get into search engines are not foolproof. If the decision to purchase the domain, and keep up it's "rent" is made, you'll need to decide on one author domain (generally your name) or separate domains (websites) for each book. Most authors who choose to support a domain will not find they are finished with just one published work. Many authors have felt they could do a domain for their one and only book, only to realize as time passed that they were needing more domain sites, or posting information on more than one book under their first book site (i.e. bookone.com). Additionally, author sites (i.e. imaauthor.com or mywork.com) can easily include published and previously unpublished items on top of information on books (articles, maps, photos, documents, etc.).
