How essential is to discover cheap domains?

One of the most essential prerequisites for setting up a successful online presence is the domain. It is what visitors will discern 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 web page's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name 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. There are several sets of Top-Level Domains that you should consider before you choose the domain you desire. Your decision should be built upon the goal of your web site and on its target visitors. Let's check the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains intended to denote a specific intention - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative web sites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (particular professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains encompass most fields of life, so you should choose the one that would depict the purpose of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include additional requirements to verify that you qualify to keep such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (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 website visitors is from a certain country. Many people would rather buy goods or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca domain name could increase the visits to your web site.

Domain Redirects

You can register different Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your visitors to a specific site like domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and decrease the risk of somebody stealing your website visitors by registering the same name with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) exhibit where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting company whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using now. You can alter the name servers of your domain at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the site hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and stumble upon decent website hosting plans somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the new provider's name servers instantly.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a specific set of NSs, all its domain name records will direct to the same website hosting provider. Some webspace hosting distributors, though, allow you to edit specific domain records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which hosting server your web site is situated, while the MX records exhibit which web hosting server tackles the mail addresses associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new site designer and he designs an .ASP website that will be situated on his own Windows web server, you may want to alter solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will point to the Windows hosting server, but your mail accounts or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and demands a Windows hosting server, although a Linux hosting server would be way more stable.
