How valuable can an affordable domain be?
One of the most essential preconditions for building a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will discern first when they visit your website and what they will link you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your site's visitors what the website is about.
Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)
A domain name as a rule consists of 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (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 couple of categories of TLDs that you should examine before you pick the domain name you desire. Your selection should be built upon the intention of your website and on its target audience. Let's have a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular TLDs aimed to express a given intention - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informational sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most spheres of life, so you should opt for the one that would illustrate the purpose of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them contain extra procedures to confirm that you qualify to keep such a TLD (.mobi and .pro, for instance).
Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)
The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Opting for such a TLD is good if your target group of website visitors is from a given country. Many persons would elect to buy goods or services from a local website, and if your target is Canada, for example, picking a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could increase the visits to your website.
You can register several domains, which can send your web page's visitors to a specific website such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and decrease the possibility of someone pilfering your website visitors by using the same name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.
Name Servers (NSs)
Every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) demonstrate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can substitute the name servers of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain name and discover decent website hosting services someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain name to the new company's name servers instantaneously.
Name Server Records (DNS Records)
In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a given pair of DNSs, all its domain records will direct to the same site hosting provider. Some web hosting vendors, however, permit you to modify given domain name server records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which indicates on which hosting server your site is located, whereas the MX records exhibit which web hosting server handles the e-mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web page designer and he build an .ASP web site that will be hosted on his own Windows hosting server, you may want to change just 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 hosting server, but your electronic mail accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux site hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more dependable.
