How valuable can an affordable domain be?

One of the most vital requirements for creating a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what people will mark first when they come across your website and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your site's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain usually has two 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 SLD. There are a few categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate prior to selecting the domain name you want. Your pick should rest on the intention of your website and on its target visitors. Let's take a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names meant to denote a particular intention - .com (commercial organizations), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informative resources), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains cover most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would denote the objective of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them include additional steps to demonstrate that you qualify to have such a domain name (.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. Getting such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of site visitors is from a given country. Many folks would elect to buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, picking a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your website.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register a number of domains, which can forward your site's visitors to a given web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the possibility of somebody snatching your web page visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) show where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at present. You can modify the DNSs of your domain whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the site hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and stumble upon decent website hosting services somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the new company's name servers straight off.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a given set of name servers, all its DNS records will lead to the same site hosting supplier. Some web site hosting distributors, however, allow you to edit given NS records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which indicates on which server your website is hosted, while the MX records specify which web server tackles the mail aliases associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new website designer and he build an .ASP website that will be hosted on his private Windows server, you may wish to edit solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your email boxes or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web server, although a Linux web server would be far more stable.
