dotLOCAL Domain

Hi Guys,
I know my question is a so newbie question, but it's really confusing me.
I don't understand the reason of using the dotLOCAL domain name
instead of dotCOM, beside I don't understand how the communication
occurs to and from the Internet to this kind of DomainName.

Your help is so much appreciated.
best regards,
