How valuable can an affordable domain be?

One of the most crucial prerequisites for establishing a successful online presence is the domain. It is what visitors will mark first when they come across your site and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your website's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name typically consists of two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few sets of Top-Level Domains that you should contemplate before you choose the domain name you desire. Your decision should be based on the goal of your web page and on its target audience. Let's check out the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular TLDs intended to express a given function - .com (business organizations), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informational web sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (particular walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most realms of life, so you should go for the one that would show the purpose of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them involve additional procedures to verify that you qualify to possess such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of visitors is from a particular country. Many folks would elect to purchase commodities or services from a local web site, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your web page.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a number of Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a specific website such as domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and lower the possibility of somebody pilfering your visitors by using the same SLD with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) specify where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at present. You can modify the NSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one company and get the website hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain name and stumble upon good website hosting solutions someplace else later, 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 particular pair of NSs, all its name server records will point to the same web site hosting distributor. Some site hosting firms, however, allow you to modify certain NS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which hosting server your web site is hosted, whereas the MX records display which hosting server tackles the e-mail accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you engage a new web site designer and he develops an .ASP website that will be hosted on his personal Windows hosting server, you may desire to modify just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your e-mail accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and requires a Windows hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be way more reliable.
