How valuable is to locate the best domain name?

One of the most important prerequisites for creating a successful web presence is the domain. It is what visitors will mark first when they chance upon your website and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain typically is composed of 2 parts - 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 groups of TLDs that you should consider before you pick the domain name you want. Your decision should be based on the purpose of your web page and on its target visitors. Let's take a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common TLDs aimed to express a particular function - .com (business enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informational sites), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would describe the purpose of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them contain additional requirements to verify that you are eligible to keep such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

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

Domain Name Redirects

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your site's visitors to a certain website such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the risk of somebody pinching your website visitors by registering the same SLD with a different TLD - 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) demonstrate where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at present. You can switch the NSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web site hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and detect decent website hosting services somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the new provider's name servers instantaneously.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a certain set of DNSs, all its DNS records will lead to the same website hosting vendor. Some site hosting vendors, however, allow you to edit specific domain records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which web hosting server your web site is hosted, whereas the MX records designate which hosting server handles the mail address accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web site designer and he sets up an .ASP website that will be situated on his own Windows web hosting server, you may want to alter solely the IP 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 hosting server, but your mail accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and requires a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more dependable.
