How valuable can an top domain name be?

One of the most important preconditions for building a successful web presence is the domain. It is what visitors will mark first when they come across your web page and what they will link you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of two components - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few sets of TLDs that you should examine prior to choosing the domain name you wish. Your choice should depend on the aim of your web site and on its target visitors. Let's scrutinize the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names aimed to designate a specific intention - .com (business establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informative resources), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (given walks of life), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most fields of life, so you should pick the one that would explain the purpose of your website best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them contain additional steps to verify that you qualify 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 domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a TLD is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many persons would sooner purchase goods or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, selecting a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your website.

Domain Forwarding

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domain Names, which can send your web site's visitors to a particular web page like domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and reduce the probability of somebody pinching your web page visitors by using the same name with a different TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) show where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web 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 want. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web page hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and find good website hosting services someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain to the present provider's DNSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a given set of NSs, all its DNS records will point to the same web space hosting vendor. Some web space hosting providers, though, allow you to modify given DNS records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which web hosting server your web page is hosted, whereas the MX records show which web hosting server handles the email aliases associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web designer and he designs an .ASP web page that will be located on his own Windows web hosting server, you may desire to modify only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Thus, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your e-mailbox 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 environment is devised by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be way more dependable.
