How essential can an affordable domain be?

One of the most essential preconditions for creating a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will spot first when they visit your web page and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally contains 2 fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider before you pick the domain name you wish. Your decision should depend on the aim of your website and on its target visitors. Let's examine the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains aimed to indicate a given purpose - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative web sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (particular professions), etc. As you can see, these TLDs encompass most spheres of life, so you should opt for the one that would denote the aim of your website best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them include additional procedures to verify that you are eligible to possess such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a TLD is good if your target group of website visitors is from a given country. Many people would want to buy commodities or services from a local site, and if your goal is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Forwarding

You can register different domain names, which can redirect your visitors to a given web page such as domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and lower the likelihood of someone pilfering your website visitors by using the same SLD with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) specify where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at present. You can modify the name servers of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web site hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and stumble upon good website hosting solutions somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the current provider's DNSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a certain pair of NSs, all its domain name records will lead to the same webspace hosting distributor. Some web site hosting vendors, however, allow you to edit certain NS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which exhibits on which web hosting server your site is situated, whereas the MX records designate which server handles the mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web page designer and he constructs an .ASP web page that will be accommodated on his personal Windows server, you may desire to change just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your electronic mails or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and demands a Windows server, although a Linux web server would be far more dependable.
