How valuable can an affordable domain name be?

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

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain typically consists of two parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate before you pick the domain name you desire. Your decision should be based on the goal of your website and on its target spectators. Let's investigate the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains meant to express a given function - .com (business enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informational sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (qualified professionals), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should opt for the one that would express the intention of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra steps to demonstrate that you are eligible to keep such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a certain country. Many visitors would like to buy goods or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, selecting a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Forwarding

You can register a bunch of domain names, which can forward your web site's visitors to a certain web site such as domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and reduce the possibility of somebody pinching your web page visitors by using the same name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) exhibit where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting firm whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can swap the NSs of your domain name whenever you like. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web page hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain name and find decent website hosting plans someplace else later, you can point your domain to the current company's NSs instantaneously.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a certain set of DNSs, all its name server records will lead to the same hosting company. Some web hosting distributors, though, permit you to modify specific records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which demonstrates on which hosting server your web site is hosted, while the MX records specify which server tackles the e-mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new web site designer and he devises an .ASP website that will be located on his own Windows web hosting server, you may wish to alter just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your e-mail boxes or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and calls for a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux hosting server would be far more stable.
