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

This is security-basics, not networking-basics. You may want to read up
on DNS, TCP/IP and Zeroconf to find the answers to your questions. Use
Wikipedia as a starting point.
