How valuable can an top domain name be?
One of the most important requirements for establishing a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what visitors will spot first when they stumble upon your web page and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your web page's visitors what the website is about.
Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)
A domain name usually consists of two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a couple of groups of TLDs that you should contemplate before you choose the domain you wish. Your pick should depend on the purpose of your web site and on its target spectators. Let's have a look at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains aimed to show a particular function - .com (business establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informative web pages), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would designate the aim of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra requirements to verify that you are eligible to have such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).
Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)
The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a specific country. Many individuals would sooner purchase commodities or services from a local web site, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca domain could increase the visits to your website.
You can register several domain names, which can forward your site's visitors to a specific web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the probability of somebody pinching your website visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.
Name Servers (NSs)
Every TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) disclose where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can replace the name servers of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web site hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain and encounter decent website hosting plans somewhere else later, you can point your domain to the present provider's name servers straight off.
Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)
On the whole, as long as your domain uses a specific pair of name servers, all its NS records will direct to the same web site hosting firm. Some web site hosting firms, though, permit you to edit certain domain name server records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which specifies on which web hosting server your web page is situated, whereas the MX records exhibit which hosting server handles the mail accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new web designer and he build an .ASP web site that will be situated on his personal Windows web server, you may desire to edit 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 mailboxes or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and requires a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux server would be far more dependable.
