How important is to find cheap domain name?

One of the most important prerequisites for running a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will mark first when they stumble upon your website and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your web site's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain usually contains two components - 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 Name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate before you pick the domain name you desire. Your selection should depend on the intention of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's have a peek at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domain Names meant to indicate a specific intention - .com (commercial establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative web sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (given professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should select the one that would denote the aim of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them involve additional requirements to show that you qualify to keep such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Selecting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a given country. Many persons would like to purchase goods or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a bunch of domain names, which can redirect your website's visitors to a certain website such as domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and decrease the probability of someone stealing your website visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) indicate where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can alter the DNSs of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web page hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain and find decent website hosting packages someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain name to the current provider's name servers right away.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain utilizes a given set of name servers, all its domain name records will direct to the same hosting company. Some site hosting firms, however, allow you to modify certain name server records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which displays on which web hosting server your web site is located, whereas the MX records reveal which web hosting server handles the mail addresses related to your domain name. For example, if you engage a new web page designer and he develops an .ASP site that will be hosted on his private Windows web server, you may want to modify only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your mail accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and demands a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux hosting server would be far more stable.
