How valuable can an affordable domain name be?

One of the most important prerequisites for creating a successful online presence is the domain. It is what visitors will note first when they stumble upon your web site and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web page's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain typically contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a couple of categories of Top-Level Domains that you should contemplate prior to selecting the domain you wish. Your selection should be built upon the goal of your web site and on its target visitors. Let's take a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names intended to express a particular intention - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative resources), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (specific professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should choose the one that would depict the objective of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them include additional requirements to verify that you are eligible to possess such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Opting for such a domain name is good if your target group of visitors is from a particular country. Many guys would rather buy commodities or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, settling on a .ca domain name could increase the visits to your web page.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domains, which can forward your website's visitors to a specific website like, for example. This would boost the traffic and lower the risk of someone stealing your web page visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) reveal where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can modify the NSs of your domain name at all times. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain name and come across decent website hosting packages someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the new provider's DNSs immediately.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a specific pair of NSs, all its records will direct to the same web site hosting company. Some webspace hosting distributors, however, allow you to edit given name server records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which server your website is located, whereas the MX records disclose which hosting server tackles the mail aliases associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web designer and he devises an .ASP website that will be hosted on his own Windows server, you may wish to modify solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. In this way, will direct to the Windows web server, but your e-mailboxes or any sub-domain names such as or will still be in your current Linux hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and demands a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux web server would be far more reliable.
