How important can an affordable domain name be?
One of the most crucial requirements for setting up a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will see first when they visit your web site and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your visitors what the web site is about.
Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)
A domain usually is composed of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a few groups of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine prior to picking the domain name you wish. Your pick should depend on the purpose of your website and on its target viewers. Let's take a peek at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common TLDs intended to show a specific function - .com (commercial organizations), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative resources), .org (organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (particular professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most fields of life, so you should pick the one that would express the purpose of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them include extra procedures to prove that you qualify to possess such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).
Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)
The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a TLD is good if your target group of website visitors is from a certain country. Many persons would want to buy goods or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for example, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your website.
Domain Name Redirects
You can register a bunch of domains, which can send your web site's visitors to a certain website such as domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and decrease the likelihood of someone swiping your visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.
Name Servers (NSs)
Each and every domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can replace the name servers of your domain name whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and discover decent website hosting services somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain name to the new company's name servers straight away.
Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)
In general, as long as your domain name uses a specific pair of name servers, all its NS records will lead to the same web site hosting provider. Some web hosting suppliers, though, allow you to edit given domain name server records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which reveals on which hosting server your website is located, whereas the MX records demonstrate which web server handles the mail accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web page designer and he constructs an .ASP site that will be hosted on his private Windows hosting server, you may desire to edit only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your e-mail box accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web server, even though a Linux server would be way more stable.
