How crucial can an affordable domain name be?

One of the most vital prerequisites for having a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will perceive first when they discover your web site and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain typically contains 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 Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider before you select the domain name you wish. Your selection should be based on the goal of your website and on its target viewers. Let's explore the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains intended to designate a specific purpose - .com (commercial entities), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informative sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (particular walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these TLDs cover most fields of life, so you should pick the one that would indicate the intention of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them involve additional requirements to show that you qualify to own such a TLD (.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. Getting such a TLD is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many people would sooner buy commodities or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Redirects

You can register different Top-Level Domains, which can forward your web site's visitors to a certain web page like domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and reduce the chance of somebody snatching your visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) demonstrate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can swap the name servers of your domain whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain name and come across good website hosting services somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the present provider's DNSs right away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a certain set of NSs, all its name server records will direct to the same site hosting vendor. Some web site hosting providers, however, allow you to modify certain domain records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which demonstrates on which server your website is hosted, while the MX records indicate which web hosting server tackles the mail aliases related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web page designer and he sets up an .ASP website that will be hosted on his own Windows web hosting server, you may desire to change solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your e-mail accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux site hosting account. The .ASP platform is created by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux hosting server would be way more reliable.
