How crucial can an affordable domain be?

One of the most crucial requirements for setting up a successful Internet presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will discern first when they chance upon your web page and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain as a rule contains 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine prior to choosing the domain you desire. Your pick should rest on the goal of your site and on its target visitors. Let's have a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domains aimed to express a given purpose - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informative sites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would describe the aim of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them involve extra requirements to ascertain that you qualify to keep such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of visitors is from a given country. Many visitors would elect to purchase goods or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your site.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your website's visitors to a particular site like domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and reduce the likelihood of somebody pilfering your web site visitors by using the same SLD with a different TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) display where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using now. You can substitute the NSs of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web space hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and stumble upon decent website hosting plans somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present company's DNSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a certain set of NSs, all its name server records will direct to the same web hosting company. Some web page hosting suppliers, however, enable you to edit specific DNS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which details on which hosting server your site is hosted, whereas the MX records indicate which web hosting server handles the email addresses related to your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web site designer and he devises an .ASP website that will be situated on his personal Windows server, you may wish to change just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. In this way, www.domain.com will point to the Windows server, but your email box accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux web server would be far more reliable.
