How valuable can an affordable domain name be?

One of the most important preconditions for creating a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will discern first when they discover your web site and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your web site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically is composed of two constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are several sets of TLDs that you should contemplate prior to picking the domain name you want. Your choice should depend on the purpose of your site and on its target visitors. Let's analyze the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains aimed to signify a given function - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informational web sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (particular walks of life), and so on. As you can perceive, these TLDs cover most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would indicate the purpose of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them include extra requirements to confirm that you are eligible to have such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a domain name is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a particular country. Many persons would sooner purchase goods or services from a local site, and if your goal is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could increase the visits to your website.

Domain Redirects

You can register different domain names, which can send your web site's visitors to a specific site such as domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and lower the chance of somebody swiping your web page visitors by using the same name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) indicate where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at present. You can switch the NSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain and encounter good website hosting solutions someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the current company's name servers straight away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a certain pair of DNSs, all its name server records will point to the same website hosting supplier. Some web hosting firms, however, allow you to modify certain DNS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which specifies on which web server your site is hosted, while the MX records show which web hosting server tackles the mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web page designer and he creates an .ASP website that will be accommodated on his personal Windows web server, you may want to edit solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your e-mail address accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux site hosting account. The .ASP platform is created by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, although a Linux server would be far more reliable.
