How valuable is to find the best domain name?

One of the most crucial preconditions for having a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what people will notice first when they discover your web site and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name as a rule is composed of two fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate before you select the domain name you wish. Your pick should rest on the goal of your web page and on its target audience. Let's check out the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domain Names intended to express a particular intention - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (specific professions), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most spheres of life, so you should go for the one that would express the aim of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them contain extra procedures to show that you are eligible to keep such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many people would prefer to purchase goods or services from a local web site, and if your target is Canada, for example, registering a .ca domain could increase the visits to your website.

URL Redirection

You can register a bunch of TLDs, which can forward your site's visitors to a particular website such as domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and reduce the likelihood of somebody swiping your web site visitors by using the same name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) disclose where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can substitute the NSs of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and come across good website hosting services someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain name to the current provider's name servers straight off.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a particular pair of NSs, all its records will lead to the same hosting supplier. Some site hosting firms, though, enable you to modify specific records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which web hosting server your website is located, whereas the MX records exhibit which web hosting server tackles the e-mail box accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new web designer and he devises an .ASP site that will be situated on his own Windows server, you may desire to modify solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. In this way, www.domain.com will point to the Windows hosting server, but your electronic mails or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP environment is invented by Microsoft and requires a Windows web server, even though a Linux server would be far more reliable.
