How important is to discover the best domain?

One of the most essential preconditions for having a successful online presence is the domain. It is what visitors will note first when they visit your web page and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your website's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally contains two components - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few categories of TLDs that you should examine before you pick the domain name you want. Your choice should be built upon the purpose of your site and on its target visitors. Let's explore the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domain Names meant to designate a particular intention - .com (business entities), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative websites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (qualified professionals), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most fields of life, so you should select the one that would describe the intention of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them contain additional requirements to prove that you are eligible to own such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a specific country. Many individuals would rather purchase commodities or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could increase the visits to your site.

URL Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domain Names, which can send your web site's visitors to a particular site such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the probability of someone swiping your site visitors by registering the same SLD with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) display where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using now. You can modify the name servers of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the website hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and stumble upon good website hosting packages someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the new provider's name servers straight off.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a given set of DNSs, all its records will point to the same site hosting company. Some website hosting vendors, though, permit you to modify certain NS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which displays on which hosting server your website is situated, whereas the MX records designate which server handles the electronic mail accounts related to your domain name. For example, if you take on a new web site designer and he develops an .ASP web page that will be located on his private Windows web 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 e-mail address accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP platform is invented by Microsoft and requests a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be way more secure.
