How essential is to discover the best domain?

One of the most vital preconditions for creating a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will observe first when they visit your site and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your site's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name usually consists of 2 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 few groups of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you choose the domain you desire. Your decision should be built upon the aim of your site and on its target visitors. Let's take a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains aimed to denote a given purpose - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative web sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals or families), .pro (given walks of life), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most fields of life, so you should settle on the one that would describe the objective of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them include additional requirements to demonstrate that you qualify to register such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a domain name is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a specific country. Many people would want to purchase commodities or services from a local site, and if your goal is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca domain could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Redirection

You can register a number of Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your web page's visitors to a certain web page such as domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and lower the likelihood of somebody swiping your website visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with a different TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) specify 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 at the moment. You can change the name servers of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain name and detect good website hosting services somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the new provider's DNSs instantaneously.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a certain pair of NSs, all its domain name server records will direct to the same website hosting provider. Some webspace hosting distributors, though, permit you to modify certain name server records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which web server your website is situated, while the MX records specify which server tackles the e-mail addresses related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new website designer and he constructs an .ASP web site that will be situated on his personal Windows web server, you may want to modify solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. In this way, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your e-mail address accounts or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is devised by Microsoft and calls for a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more reliable.
