How valuable can an affordable domain name be?

One of the most crucial preconditions for having a successful web presence is the domain. It is what visitors will mark first when they chance upon your site and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your web site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain as a rule is composed of 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of groups of Top-Level Domains that you should contemplate before you select the domain you wish. Your pick should be based on the goal of your site and on its target viewers. Let's take a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical TLDs aimed to show a particular intention - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (particular walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these TLDs cover most realms of life, so you should pick the one that would depict the purpose of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them involve additional procedures to prove that you are eligible to have such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a domain is good if your target group of visitors is from a specific country. Many persons would elect to buy goods or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a number of TLDs, which can send your web site's visitors to a certain web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and lower the probability of someone pinching your web page 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 domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) disclose where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using now. You can change the NSs of your domain at any time. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and come across decent website hosting packages somewhere else later, you can point your domain to the present company's NSs instantly.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a given set of name servers, all its domain name records will point to the same web site hosting distributor. Some website hosting suppliers, though, allow you to modify certain records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which web server your website is hosted, while the MX records demonstrate which web hosting server tackles the mail aliases related to your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new site designer and he develops an .ASP site that will be accommodated on his own Windows web server, you may want to modify solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows server, but your mailboxes or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux hosting account. The .ASP platform is created by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux hosting server would be far more reliable.
