How essential can an affordable domain name be?

One of the most important requirements for establishing a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will mark first when they stumble upon your website and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your website's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically is composed of 2 components - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few sets of TLDs that you should examine before you choose the domain you desire. Your choice should rest on the aim of your site and on its target spectators. Let's have a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most typical Top-Level Domain Names aimed to express a given intention - .com (commercial entities), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative websites), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these TLDs cover most spheres of life, so you should pick the one that would illustrate the purpose of your website best. There is no limitation as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them include extra requirements to prove that you qualify to keep such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

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. Settling on such a TLD is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many individuals would like to purchase commodities or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for example, selecting a .ca TLD could increase the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register different Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a given website such as, for example. This would raise the traffic and decrease the possibility of someone pilfering your website visitors by registering the same SLD with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain 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 supplier whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can modify the NSs of your domain name at all times. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the site hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain name and find good website hosting solutions somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the current company's NSs straight away.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a particular pair of NSs, all its name server records will lead to the same site hosting provider. Some web hosting distributors, however, permit you to edit specific domain name server records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which exhibits on which hosting server your website is hosted, whereas the MX records reveal which web server tackles the mail aliases related to your domain name. For example, if you engage a new web designer and he build an .ASP website that will be situated on his personal Windows web hosting server, you may want to change only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your mailbox accounts or any sub-domains such as or will still be in your current Linux website hosting account. The .ASP environment is developed by Microsoft and calls for a Windows server, even though a Linux server would be way more secure.
