How valuable is to locate cheap domain names?

One of the most essential prerequisites for having a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will observe first when they discover your web site and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are several sets of Top-Level Domains that you should consider prior to selecting the domain name you desire. Your pick should depend on the aim of your web site and on its target audience. Let's have a glance at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domains aimed to denote a specific function - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informative resources), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (certain professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would portray the aim of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra requirements to prove that you are eligible to own such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

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

URL Redirects

You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can send your web page's visitors to a particular web site like domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the probability of somebody snatching your site visitors by registering the same name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every domain name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) display where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at present. You can swap the DNSs of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web site hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain name and discover good website hosting solutions somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the present provider's NSs instantly.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain utilizes a given set of name servers, all its name server records will direct to the same web page hosting company. Some site hosting firms, though, permit you to modify specific domain name records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which specifies on which server your website is located, whereas the MX records exhibit which web hosting server tackles the e-mail addresses associated with your domain name. For example, if you appoint a new web site designer and he devises an .ASP website that will be situated on his private Windows web hosting server, you may desire to alter only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your email boxes or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and requires a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux web server would be far more reliable.
