How important can an affordable domain name be?

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

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name as a rule has 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, 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 Domains that you should contemplate prior to picking the domain name you desire. Your pick should depend on the purpose of your website and on its target spectators. Let's examine the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread TLDs intended to designate a particular intention - .com (business enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informational websites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals or families), .pro (specific professions), etc. As you can perceive, these TLDs cover most fields of life, so you should go for the one that would denote the intention of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domains, but some of them contain additional requirements to demonstrate that you qualify to keep such a 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 domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of visitors is from a particular country. Many people would like to purchase goods or services from a local web site, and if your goal is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca domain name could increase the visits to your website.

URL Redirection

You can register a number of domains, which can forward your website's visitors to a particular web page like, for instance. This would increase the traffic and decrease the possibility of someone pinching your website visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with another TLD - 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) display where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting company whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can change the name servers of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the website hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and discover good website hosting solutions somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the present provider's NSs at once.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a certain pair of NSs, all its NS records will lead to the same web page hosting vendor. Some web site hosting providers, however, enable you to edit certain records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which displays on which server your web site is situated, while the MX records disclose which web hosting server handles the email addresses related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web site designer and he designs an .ASP web site that will be situated on his private Windows server, you may desire to alter solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, will direct to the Windows server, but your email mailboxes or any sub-domains like or will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is devised by Microsoft and demands a Windows server, even though a Linux server would be way more dependable.
