There's a site I want to join but I can't join unless I have an e-mail address that was bought and paid for. I can't use a free e-mail such as something from Yahoo or Gmail. Where do I go to "buy" an e-mail address?

mailinator.com will hook you up with a free one that may work.
 
Otherwise, you need to buy a domain. If you don't know anything about it, I guess 1and1.com should help. That's where I buy my domains. Make sure you read about exactly how it works before laying down the cash.

My 'paid' email address just came with my net subscription - you should ask your ISP if they have their own mail system.

Sounds like a pretty weird site to require a paid email account.

@Meteora: A site like gamespress.com or neogaf require a non free email address.

The very idea that Neogaf is worthy of getting a paid email address is fucking laughable.

just use your ISP email address... because you "pay" for it... I think i can have at least half a dozen different email addresses that are included with my broadband package, but I don't use it, because i move and will change ISP.

find a different website so you don't have to pay for a website. it's the internet you can find the same information from a free website.  who pays for email? this isn't like the 90's where dial up first started.

Give YopMail a shot  http://www.yopmail.com/en/email-generator.php 
It isn't a pay one but worth a shot as you don't even have to sign up for anything -- it generates "random & disposable" addresses w/o the need for you to create it. They offer a few different domain names too if "@yopmail.com" doesn't work.

If it's neoGAF use your school e-mail, since if you were out of school you would not need to ask us this question. If you are out of school your ISP email will also work.
 
A university should provide a .edu email, and high schools nowadays usually provide unique emails as well. Either will work (again, assuming it's GAF membership you're after)

I'll use my ISP e-mail.
 
For those thinking I want to join NeoGAF, you're right. I need to see what that place is all about. Believe me, I used to post at 1up and that site is filled to the brim with egotists, arrogant bloggers, phonies and jerks who can't take differing opinions. NeoGAF can't be any worse.

Exactly there are also plenty of other domain sites that do the same thing, such as GoDaddy. Also, you might be able to use an e-mail address from your Internet ISP (i.e. Bell or Rogers if you live in Canada).

I was about to say that, the only reason why I don't go to NeoGaf.
