How essential is to discover the best domain?

One of the most essential preconditions for building a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what people will note first when they chance upon your website and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your site's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally has two fragments - a Top-Level Domain (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 a couple of groups of TLDs that you should consider prior to picking the domain you want. Your choice should be based on the aim of your site and on its target visitors. Let's have a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical Top-Level Domain Names intended to signify a specific intention - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative web sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most spheres of life, so you should pick the one that would signify the purpose of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them involve extra steps to show that you are eligible to register such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a specific country. Many visitors would sooner purchase commodities or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could increase the visits to your web page.

URL Redirection

You can register several Top-Level Domains, which can send your web page's visitors to a certain site such as domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the probability of somebody pilfering your site visitors by using the same SLD with another TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) exhibit where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting company whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using now. You can substitute the DNSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web site hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain and discover decent website hosting plans somewhere else later, you can point your domain to the present provider's NSs at once.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a particular set of name servers, all its records will direct to the same webspace hosting firm. Some site hosting vendors, though, allow you to edit specific records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which demonstrates on which server your website is situated, while the MX records demonstrate which web hosting server handles the email aliases related to your domain name. For example, if you take on a new site designer and he designs an .ASP website that will be situated on his private Windows web server, you may want to edit only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. In this way, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your mail address accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux site hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and demands a Windows web server, although a Linux hosting server would be way more reliable.
