How vital is to find cheap domain names?

One of the most important requirements for building a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will discern first when they chance upon your web site and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically has two fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a few categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate prior to choosing the domain name you want. Your selection should be based on the aim of your website and on its target visitors. Let's take a peek at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains intended to designate a specific function - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informational websites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most spheres of life, so you should pick the one that would describe the objective of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them contain additional steps to prove that you are eligible to have such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many guys would prefer to buy commodities or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Redirection

You can register a number of Top-Level Domain Names, which can send your site's visitors to a specific web page like domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and lower the chance of someone stealing your visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) indicate 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 now. You can switch the NSs of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and come across decent website hosting packages someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the present provider's NSs immediately.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a given set of DNSs, all its name server records will point to the same webspace hosting firm. Some webspace hosting distributors, though, permit you to edit certain records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which details on which web server your site is hosted, while the MX records exhibit which web server tackles the e-mail aliases related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new site designer and he sets up an .ASP web site that will be hosted on his private 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. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows server, but your e-mailbox accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is devised by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows hosting server, although a Linux hosting server would be way more stable.
