How crucial is to discover the best domain?

One of the most vital requirements for creating a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what people will note first when they visit your website and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your web page's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally consists of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few categories of TLDs that you should contemplate prior to choosing the domain you want. Your decision should be built upon the goal of your site and on its target spectators. Let's have a peek at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most popular Top-Level Domain Names aimed to designate a particular function - .com (business enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative resources), .org (organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains encompass most realms of life, so you should pick the one that would describe the intention of your website best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include additional procedures to demonstrate that you qualify to own such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a TLD is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many folks would like to purchase goods or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for example, getting a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your site.

Domain Redirects

You can register a number of Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your web page's visitors to a specific web site like domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and reduce the possibility of someone pilfering your web site visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) exhibit where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting firm whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at present. 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 web page hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and encounter good website hosting packages somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the new provider's NSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a certain set of NSs, all its domain name server records will lead to the same website hosting firm. Some hosting companies, however, allow you to modify certain domain name records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which indicates on which server your web page is situated, whereas the MX records exhibit which web hosting server handles the email accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web designer and he sets up an .ASP web site that will be situated 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 direct to the Windows web server, but your e-mails or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and requires a Windows web server, although a Linux web hosting server would be far more secure.
