How vital can an top domain name be?

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

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain usually consists of two components - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine prior to picking the domain you wish. Your selection should depend on the intention of your site and on its target audience. Let's take a look at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names intended to show a particular purpose - .com (commercial establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informational sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most spheres of life, so you should choose the one that would depict the aim of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domains, but some of them contain extra requirements to verify that you qualify to own such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Opting for such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many individuals would like to buy goods or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register different domain names, which can send your web site's visitors to a certain site such as, for example. This would raise the traffic and lower the chance of someone pilfering your web page visitors by using the same SLD with another TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) specify where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can replace the name servers of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and encounter decent website hosting solutions somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the current provider's NSs immediately.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a particular pair of DNSs, all its name server records will lead to the same hosting company. Some webspace hosting distributors, though, enable you to modify certain domain name server records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which exhibits on which web server your web site is situated, whereas the MX records display which server handles the email accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you engage a new website designer and he constructs an .ASP web site that will be situated on his personal Windows hosting server, you may wish to modify just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. In this way, will direct to the Windows server, but your e-mail boxes or any sub-domains such as or will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP platform is developed by Microsoft and calls for a Windows server, even though a Linux server would be far more reliable.
