How important can an affordable domain be?

One of the most important preconditions for running a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will notice first when they visit your website and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally contains two fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a few groups of Top-Level Domains that you should contemplate before you pick the domain name you wish. Your decision should depend on the intention of your website and on its target audience. Let's have a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common Top-Level Domains meant to signify a given purpose - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informational sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (qualified professionals), and so on. As you can perceive, these TLDs encompass most fields of life, so you should opt for the one that would designate the objective of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them involve extra steps to prove that you qualify to have such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Opting for such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of visitors is from a specific country. Many guys would rather buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca domain could boost the visits to your site.

URL Redirection

You can register several TLDs, which can send your website's visitors to a given web page such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and lower the risk of somebody snatching your visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) disclose where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using now. You can alter the name servers of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the website hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and find good website hosting plans someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present company's NSs right away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a specific set of name servers, all its name server records will lead to the same web site hosting company. Some hosting vendors, however, enable you to modify certain name server records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which specifies on which web hosting server your site is located, whereas the MX records designate which hosting server tackles the e-mail address accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web page designer and he develops an .ASP web site that will be accommodated on his own Windows server, you may wish to modify just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will point to the Windows server, but your mail accounts or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be way more stable.
