How important is to find cheap domain name?

One of the most crucial requirements for creating a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will observe first when they chance upon your site and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name usually is composed of 2 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 couple of sets of TLDs that you should contemplate prior to selecting the domain name you want. Your pick should be based on the aim of your web page and on its target spectators. Let's examine the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains meant to designate a particular function - .com (business enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative web sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals 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 select the one that would indicate the intention of your website best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain additional procedures to confirm that you are eligible to own such a TLD (.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. Choosing such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a certain country. Many folks would elect to buy goods or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domains, which can send your web site's visitors to a particular web page like domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and lower the possibility of somebody pinching your web site visitors by using the same name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) demonstrate where the domain 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 replace the name servers of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one company and get the web space hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and find decent website hosting services someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain to the new company's DNSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a given set of DNSs, all its NS records will point to the same website hosting distributor. Some web page hosting distributors, though, enable you to modify specific DNS records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which designates on which server your web site is located, while the MX records indicate which hosting server handles the mail addresses related to your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new web site designer and he creates an .ASP web page that will be situated on his own Windows hosting server, you may want to change only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. In this way, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your mail accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP environment is developed by Microsoft and demands a Windows web server, even though a Linux web server would be way more secure.
