How vital is to find cheap domain name?

One of the most crucial requirements for having a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will see first when they stumble upon your web page and what they will link you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your site's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally consists of 2 parts - 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 Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few groups of TLDs that you should consider prior to selecting the domain name you desire. Your selection should depend on the goal of your web page and on its target audience. Let's take a peek at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common Top-Level Domains aimed to signify a given purpose - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would illustrate the objective of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them involve extra procedures to prove that you qualify to have such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a specific country. Many people would want to purchase goods or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Redirection

You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can forward your site's visitors to a particular site like domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and lower the chance of somebody stealing your web site visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with a different 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, aka DNS records) reveal where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting firm whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at present. You can alter the name servers of your domain at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the site hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and stumble upon good website hosting packages somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain name to the present company's NSs instantly.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a given set of DNSs, all its domain name server records will lead to the same web page hosting provider. Some site hosting companies, however, enable you to edit specific DNS records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which designates on which web hosting server your web site is hosted, while the MX records disclose which server handles the email aliases associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web page designer and he devises an .ASP web site that will be situated on his private Windows web hosting server, you may want to alter solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will point to the Windows hosting server, but your email address accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux site hosting account. The .ASP platform is built by Microsoft and requires a Windows web server, although a Linux web hosting server would be far more secure.
