How vital can an affordable domain be?

One of the most vital prerequisites for building a successful online presence is the domain. It is what people will note first when they visit your web page and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name usually consists of 2 components - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domains that you should examine prior to selecting the domain you desire. Your choice should depend on the purpose of your web site and on its target visitors. Let's examine the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domains intended to designate a particular purpose - .com (business establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (corporations), .info (informational web pages), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (certain walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most fields of life, so you should select the one that would designate the purpose of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them contain additional requirements to demonstrate that you are eligible to have such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of site visitors is from a particular country. Many visitors would elect to buy goods or services from a local web site, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca domain could boost the visits to your website.

URL Redirects

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your web page's visitors to a certain web site such as domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the chance of someone pinching your website visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain Name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) specify where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at present. You can switch the name servers of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain name and stumble upon good website hosting plans somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the current company's NSs immediately.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a given pair of name servers, all its NS records will direct to the same web hosting distributor. Some webspace hosting distributors, though, permit you to modify given domain name records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which hosting server your web site is situated, while the MX records demonstrate which web server handles the e-mail aliases associated with your domain name. For example, if you engage a new web designer and he creates an .ASP website that will be hosted on his private Windows web server, you may desire to modify only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your email accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP environment is devised by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, although a Linux web server would be far more secure.
