How valuable is to find cheap domain name?

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

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name typically has 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider prior to choosing the domain name you desire. Your decision should depend on the aim of your web page and on its target spectators. Let's have a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular Top-Level Domain Names meant to designate a given intention - .com (business organizations), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would depict the purpose of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them include extra procedures to show that you are eligible to own such a TLD (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of visitors is from a certain country. Many people would rather purchase commodities or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, getting a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your site.

URL Forwarding

You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can forward your web site's visitors to a particular web page such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the chance of someone pinching your site visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every domain name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) disclose where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using now. You can substitute the name servers of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one company and get the web page hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and find decent website hosting plans someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present company's name servers right away.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a given pair of DNSs, all its NS records will point to the same web hosting distributor. Some site hosting distributors, however, allow you to modify given DNS records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which discloses on which web hosting server your web site is located, whereas the MX records indicate which web hosting server tackles the mail addresses associated with your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new web page designer and he creates an .ASP site that will be situated on his private Windows web server, you may want to alter only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Thus, www.domain.com will point to the Windows hosting server, but your e-mailboxes 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 created by Microsoft and calls for a Windows server, even though a Linux hosting server would be far more stable.
