How vital is to discover the best domain?

One of the most vital preconditions for creating a successful online presence is the domain. It is what people will discern first when they come across your web site and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name traditionally is composed of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are several groups of TLDs that you should consider before you select the domain name you wish. Your choice should be built upon the intention of your web page and on its target viewers. Let's take a glance at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical TLDs aimed to show a particular intention - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informational websites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (specific professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains encompass most fields of life, so you should choose the one that would explain the intention of your website best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them contain additional steps to demonstrate that you qualify to possess such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a domain name is good if your target group of site visitors is from a given country. Many individuals would like to purchase goods or services from a local website, and if your aim is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca domain could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Redirection

You can register several Top-Level Domains, which can forward your website's visitors to a specific web page such as, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the likelihood of someone stealing your website visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain Name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can switch the name servers of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and discover decent website hosting services someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the new company's DNSs straight off.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a particular set of name servers, all its domain name records will direct to the same web space hosting distributor. Some site hosting distributors, though, allow you to edit given domain name server records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which displays on which web server your web site is hosted, whereas the MX records indicate which hosting server handles the e-mail aliases associated with your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web page designer and he develops an .ASP web site that will be situated on his personal Windows hosting server, you may want to change only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. In this way, will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your email boxes or any sub-domains like or will still be in your current Linux hosting account. The .ASP platform is invented by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux server would be way more secure.
