How vital is to discover the best domain name?

One of the most important prerequisites for running a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will discern first when they visit your website and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your website's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name usually consists of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate before you choose the domain name you wish. Your choice should be built upon the aim of your web page and on its target audience. Let's take a glance at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains aimed to signify a specific purpose - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informative sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most realms of life, so you should go for the one that would denote the objective of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include additional steps to show that you qualify to possess 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 TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a TLD is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a given country. Many folks would rather buy goods or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for instance, picking a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Redirects

You can register different domain names, which can send your visitors to a certain site such as domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and decrease the likelihood of somebody snatching your website visitors by using the same SLD with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) disclose where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can swap the NSs of your domain name at all times. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web page hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and detect decent website hosting plans somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the current provider's NSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a particular pair of name servers, all its domain records will lead to the same webspace hosting company. Some web hosting suppliers, though, permit you to modify given name server records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which displays on which web hosting server your site is situated, while the MX records specify which hosting server tackles the e-mail accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new web site designer and he devises an .ASP web page that will be accommodated on his private Windows hosting server, you may want to change only the Internet Protocol 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 mail address accounts or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is invented by Microsoft and requests a Windows server, even though a Linux web server would be way more reliable.
