How essential is to discover the best domain?

One of the most crucial preconditions for having a successful Internet presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will mark first when they chance 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 notifies your visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain typically contains two parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD. There are several sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you select the domain name you desire. Your choice should be built upon the intention of your web site and on its target visitors. Let's study the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domain Names aimed to signify a particular intention - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most realms of life, so you should choose the one that would indicate the purpose of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them contain additional procedures to prove that you qualify to possess such a 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 TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a domain is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a given country. Many people would prefer to buy commodities or services from a local website, and if your aim is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domains, which can send your visitors to a certain web site like, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the likelihood of somebody pinching your visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) specify where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting company whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can change the DNSs of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and stumble upon decent website hosting solutions somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the current company's DNSs right away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a certain pair of name servers, all its DNS records will direct to the same web hosting company. Some hosting distributors, though, enable you to modify specific NS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which web server your website is hosted, while the MX records display which server tackles the e-mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new website designer and he constructs an .ASP site that will be accommodated on his personal Windows server, you may want to edit only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your mailbox accounts or any sub-domains like or will still be in your present Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP environment is created by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux hosting server would be far more dependable.
