How essential can an affordable domain be?

One of the most important preconditions for building a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will note first when they chance upon your web site and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain as a rule consists of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few sets of TLDs that you should contemplate prior to choosing the domain you wish. Your decision should be built upon the intention of your web page and on its target viewers. Let's study the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical TLDs aimed to designate a given function - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informative resources), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these TLDs cover most fields of life, so you should go for the one that would signify the aim of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them contain extra steps to demonstrate that you are eligible to own such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of site visitors is from a particular country. Many folks would like to purchase goods or services from a local website, and if your target is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register a number of TLDs, which can send your web page's visitors to a certain web site such as, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the risk of somebody snatching your website visitors by using the same SLD with a different TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain Name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) reveal where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting company whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can replace the NSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain and detect good website hosting solutions somewhere else later, you can point your domain to the current provider's DNSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a given set of DNSs, all its records will point to the same web space hosting vendor. Some website hosting firms, however, allow you to edit given DNS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which demonstrates on which hosting server your site is situated, whereas the MX records display which web hosting server handles the email box accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web page designer and he devises an .ASP web site that will be accommodated on his own Windows web hosting server, you may desire to alter just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. In this way, will point to the Windows server, but your email mailbox accounts or any sub-domains like or will still be in your present Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP environment is devised by Microsoft and requires a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more stable.
