How essential can an affordable domain name be?

One of the most important prerequisites for setting up a successful web presence is the domain. It is what visitors will mark first when they stumble upon your web site and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your web site's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally consists of 2 fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are several sets of Top-Level Domains that you should consider before you pick the domain you want. Your choice should be based on the aim of your website and on its target viewers. Let's have a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains intended to express a specific intention - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informative resources), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain professions), etc. As you can perceive, these TLDs encompass most fields of life, so you should choose the one that would show the intention of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them include additional steps to ascertain that you qualify to register such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a domain name is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many persons would elect to purchase goods or services from a local site, and if your target is Canada, for instance, getting a .ca domain name could increase the visits to your web site.

Domain Redirects

You can register a bunch of domain names, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a specific website such as domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and lower the possibility of someone stealing your visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) show where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using now. You can substitute the name servers of your domain name at all times. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web space hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and encounter good website hosting packages somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the new company's DNSs immediately.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a particular pair of DNSs, all its DNS records will point to the same site hosting company. Some webspace hosting firms, however, allow you to modify given domain name records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which discloses on which web hosting server your web page is located, whereas the MX records display which server handles the email address accounts related to your domain name. For example, if you take on a new website designer and he creates an .ASP website that will be accommodated on his personal Windows web server, you may want to change solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your mails or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and requires a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux web server would be way more dependable.
