How valuable can an affordable domain be?

One of the most crucial prerequisites for running a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will notice first when they stumble upon your web page and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name traditionally contains 2 constituents - 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 SLD. There are a few groups of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate before you select the domain you want. Your pick should be built upon the goal of your web page and on its target visitors. Let's have a glimpse at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common TLDs aimed to express a particular purpose - .com (business enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informational websites), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (particular walks of life), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would illustrate the intention of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them include additional procedures to demonstrate that you qualify to have such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a certain country. Many persons would sooner purchase commodities or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, opting for a .ca domain name could increase the visits to your web page.

Domain Redirection

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

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain Name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka 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 using at present. You can modify the name servers of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain name and find good website hosting packages someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the present company's NSs straight off.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a particular pair of DNSs, all its domain records will lead to the same web space hosting vendor. Some web hosting suppliers, however, enable you to edit specific NS records, among them 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 web site is located, whereas the MX records specify which hosting server tackles the e-mail addresses related to your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new website designer and he designs an .ASP website that will be located on his private Windows web server, you may want to alter just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows server, but your email accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and demands a Windows server, although a Linux server would be far more reliable.
