How important can an top domain be?

One of the most vital prerequisites for running a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will note first when they come across your web page and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain as a rule has two fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a few sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate prior to picking the domain name you wish. Your choice should be based on the intention of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's have a glance at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common TLDs meant to express a particular purpose - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informative sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (specific professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most fields of life, so you should pick the one that would designate the aim of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain additional requirements to verify that you are eligible to have such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of site visitors is from a certain country. Many people would like to buy goods or services from a local site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Forwarding

You can register several domain names, which can redirect your web page's visitors to a particular web page such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the probability of somebody swiping your website visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) exhibit where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can change the NSs of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain name and discover decent website hosting plans somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the new company's name servers straight off.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a certain pair of NSs, all its records will direct to the same website hosting vendor. Some web space hosting suppliers, though, allow you to modify given NS 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 website is located, whereas the MX records specify which hosting server tackles the mailbox accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web page designer and he develops an .ASP web site that will be accommodated on his personal Windows web hosting server, you may desire to edit only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your electronic mail accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is invented by Microsoft and requests a Windows web hosting server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more secure.
