How vital is to find the best domain name?

One of the most important preconditions for building a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will notice first when they come across your web page and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your web site's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name typically is composed of 2 components - 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 Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of categories of TLDs that you should examine before you choose the domain name you wish. Your decision should be based on the goal of your website and on its target audience. Let's examine the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most popular TLDs intended to express a particular purpose - .com (business establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (corporations), .info (informative web pages), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (certain walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would signify the objective of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them involve extra procedures to demonstrate that you are eligible to keep such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a domain is good if your target group of site visitors is from a specific country. Many guys would sooner purchase goods or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your website.

Domain Forwarding

You can register a bunch of TLDs, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a certain web page such as domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and decrease the possibility of someone pilfering your visitors by using the same name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using now. You can modify the DNSs of your domain at any moment. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the web space hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and detect good website hosting plans someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present company's name servers at once.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a certain set of name servers, all its name server records will direct to the same web space hosting distributor. Some web site hosting suppliers, though, allow you to modify specific name server records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which exhibits on which hosting server your web site is located, whereas the MX records designate which hosting server tackles the e-mail box accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web page designer and he constructs an .ASP site that will be hosted on his personal Windows web hosting server, you may want to alter solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Thus, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your mails or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and requests a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux web server would be far more reliable.
