How valuable is to locate cheap domain names?

One of the most crucial preconditions for running a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what people will spot first when they come across your web page and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of two fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a couple of categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider prior to choosing the domain name you wish. Your pick should rest on the purpose of your website and on its target audience. Let's study the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical Top-Level Domain Names aimed to indicate a given intention - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative web pages), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can see, these TLDs cover most realms of life, so you should pick the one that would describe the purpose of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them involve additional requirements to ascertain that you qualify to keep such a TLD (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a given country. Many visitors would rather buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, registering a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Forwarding

You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can send your web page's visitors to a specific website such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and decrease the risk of somebody pilfering your web page visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) reveal where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can switch the name servers of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web page hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and find decent website hosting solutions somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the present company's DNSs at once.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a certain pair of NSs, all its domain name records will direct to the same web page hosting vendor. Some website hosting companies, though, allow you to modify certain DNS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which shows on which server your website is hosted, whereas the MX records disclose which web hosting server tackles the mail aliases 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 accommodated on his personal Windows hosting server, you may want to modify solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your email mailbox 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 environment is devised by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux web server would be way more dependable.
