How important is to locate the best domain?

One of the most important requirements for running a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will notice first when they visit your site and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your web site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of two fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few categories of Top-Level Domains that you should examine before you choose the domain name you desire. Your decision should depend on the purpose of your website and on its target audience. Let's take a glance at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domain Names meant to designate a given intention - .com (commercial organizations), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informative sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most fields of life, so you should select the one that would designate the intention 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 ascertain that you qualify to keep 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 domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a domain is good if your target group of visitors is from a certain country. Many visitors would sooner purchase commodities or services from a local web page, and if your target is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca domain could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a number of domains, which can send your visitors to a certain web site like domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and lower the risk of somebody pinching your website visitors by using the same SLD with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) indicate where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using now. You can replace the name servers of your domain at all times. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the web page hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and encounter decent website hosting plans somewhere else later, you can point your domain to the current provider's name servers immediately.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a certain pair of NSs, all its name server records will lead to the same web page hosting provider. Some web space hosting companies, however, permit you to modify given records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which demonstrates on which server your web site is located, while the MX records display which hosting server tackles the e-mail box accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new site designer and he devises an .ASP site that will be located on his private Windows hosting server, you may wish to edit only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your email address accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP environment is devised by Microsoft and requires a Windows web server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more dependable.
