How vital is to locate the best domain?

One of the most essential prerequisites for establishing a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will mark first when they chance upon your site and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name typically contains 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate before you pick the domain you desire. Your choice should be based on the goal of your website and on its target spectators. Let's check out the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular Top-Level Domain Names aimed to denote a specific purpose - .com (commercial organizations), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative websites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (given walks of life), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would illustrate the aim of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain additional steps to ascertain 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 Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a particular country. Many persons would sooner buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for instance, opting for a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register different TLDs, which can send your visitors to a particular website like, for instance. This would boost the traffic and reduce the possibility of someone stealing your web page visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can modify the NSs of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the website hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and find decent website hosting packages someplace else later, you can point your domain to the present provider's name servers instantly.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain utilizes a given set of NSs, all its domain name records will point to the same web page hosting supplier. Some web space hosting suppliers, however, allow you to edit specific domain name records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which web hosting server your site is located, whereas the MX records disclose which hosting server handles the e-mail aliases associated with your domain name. For example, if you appoint a new web site designer and he build an .ASP web page that will be hosted on his own Windows web hosting server, you may wish to alter only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, will point to the Windows hosting server, but your mail address accounts or any sub-domain names such as or will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is created by Microsoft and demands a Windows server, although a Linux web server would be far more secure.
