How vital is to locate the best domain name?

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

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name as a rule has 2 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 categories of Top-Level Domains that you should examine before you select the domain you desire. Your choice should be built upon the purpose of your website and on its target spectators. Let's take a glimpse at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most common TLDs meant to designate a given purpose - .com (commercial establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informational web pages), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should opt for the one that would describe the purpose of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them include extra requirements to show that you qualify to possess such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Opting for such a TLD is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many people would want to purchase commodities or services from a local website, and if your goal is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca domain could increase the visits to your web page.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register different domain names, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a given site like domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and decrease the risk of someone pinching your web site visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) show where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can replace the name servers of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain name and come across good website hosting plans someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the current provider's DNSs instantly.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a particular set of DNSs, all its DNS records will direct to the same web site hosting vendor. Some website hosting providers, however, permit you to modify given domain records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which demonstrates on which server your website is hosted, whereas the MX records demonstrate which web server tackles the e-mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you engage a new website designer and he devises an .ASP site that will be hosted on his personal Windows web server, you may desire to change only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. In this way, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your e-mails or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP platform is developed by Microsoft and requires a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more dependable.
