How crucial can an affordable domain be?

One of the most essential preconditions for running a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what people will notice first when they stumble upon your web page and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your website's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of two constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are several groups of Top-Level Domains that you should examine before you select the domain name you wish. Your decision should rest on the aim of your web site and on its target spectators. Let's review the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domain Names meant to denote a particular intention - .com (commercial entities), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most realms of life, so you should select the one that would illustrate the objective of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them involve additional steps to show that you qualify to keep such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of visitors is from a particular country. Many visitors would rather purchase commodities or services from a local web site, and if your target is Canada, for example, picking a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domains, which can forward your site's visitors to a specific web site like domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and reduce the risk of somebody pinching your site visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) disclose where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can switch the name servers of your domain at any time. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web space hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and encounter decent website hosting services somewhere else later, you can point your domain to the current company's NSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a particular set of name servers, all its domain name server records will point to the same webspace hosting company. Some web site hosting distributors, however, enable you to edit certain DNS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which displays on which web hosting server your web page is hosted, while the MX records exhibit which hosting server handles the mail address accounts related to your domain name. For example, if you take on a new website designer and he creates an .ASP website that will be hosted on his private Windows hosting server, you may wish to edit solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows hosting server, but your email accounts or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is developed by Microsoft and requests a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux web server would be far more stable.
