How vital can an affordable domain be?

One of the most crucial prerequisites for building a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will perceive first when they visit your website and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain usually is composed of 2 parts - 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 categories of Top-Level Domains that you should contemplate before you pick the domain you desire. Your selection should be based on the purpose of your web page and on its target audience. Let's have a peek at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular Top-Level Domain Names intended to denote a specific intention - .com (business entities), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informational sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (particular walks of life), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most fields of life, so you should select the one that would indicate the objective of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain extra requirements to ascertain that you qualify to own such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a TLD is good if your target group of site visitors is from a given country. Many individuals would elect to purchase commodities or services from a local website, and if your goal is Canada, for example, settling on a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your site.

URL Redirects

You can register several Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a given web page like domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and reduce the possibility of someone pilfering your web page visitors by registering the same name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) reveal where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting firm whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can alter the NSs of your domain whenever you like. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web site hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and discover good website hosting plans somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the current company's NSs straight away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a given set of NSs, all its domain name records will point to the same hosting supplier. Some web hosting distributors, though, enable you to modify certain NS records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which details on which web server your web site is situated, while the MX records exhibit which server handles the email accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new site designer and he devises an .ASP site that will be located on his private Windows server, you may desire to change 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 web hosting server, but your e-mail boxes or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux hosting account. The .ASP environment is invented by Microsoft and requires a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux hosting server would be far more reliable.
