How vital can an affordable domain be?

One of the most important requirements for having a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will spot first when they chance upon your web page and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your website's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain as a rule consists of two parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domains that you should contemplate before you pick the domain name you desire. Your choice should depend on the aim of your web site and on its target audience. Let's take a peek at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains aimed to show a given function - .com (commercial organizations), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informative web sites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most spheres of life, so you should opt for the one that would signify the objective of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them include additional requirements to show that you are eligible to possess such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Opting for such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a certain country. Many folks would prefer to buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register a number of domain names, which can send your website's visitors to a particular site like, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the possibility of someone stealing your web page visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with another TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) show where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at present. You can substitute the name servers of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and stumble upon decent website hosting packages somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the current company's NSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a particular set of DNSs, all its domain name records will lead to the same site hosting provider. Some hosting firms, though, permit you to edit specific NS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which details on which hosting server your web site is located, whereas the MX records disclose which web hosting server handles the mail address accounts related to your domain name. For example, if you engage a new site designer and he creates an .ASP web page that will be located on his private Windows web hosting server, you may wish to alter solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. In this way, will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your email mailboxes or any sub-domains like or will still be in your present Linux web hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more dependable.
