How essential is to locate cheap domains?

One of the most vital prerequisites for establishing a successful online presence is the domain. It is what people will notice first when they stumble upon your site and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your web page's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain usually consists 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 Second-Level Domain. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine prior to choosing the domain name you want. Your decision should be built upon the aim of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's take a peek at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domain Names aimed to denote a specific function - .com (business enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (corporations), .info (informational sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these TLDs encompass most spheres of life, so you should pick the one that would denote the objective of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain additional requirements to show that you are eligible to have such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a given country. Many individuals would elect to buy goods or services from a local web site, and if your target is Canada, for example, getting a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Redirection

You can register different domain names, which can send your web page's visitors to a given web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and decrease the likelihood of somebody pilfering your web site visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with a different TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) show where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can swap the NSs of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the web site hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain name and discover good website hosting packages someplace else later, you can point your domain to the current provider's DNSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a specific set of NSs, all its domain name records will point to the same site hosting provider. Some hosting vendors, though, enable you to edit specific domain name records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which shows on which web hosting server your site is hosted, whereas the MX records designate which web hosting server tackles the e-mail accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you take on a new web site designer and he build an .ASP web page that will be accommodated on his own Windows web server, you may desire to alter only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Thus, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your mail address accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux site hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, although a Linux hosting server would be far more secure.
