How valuable can an affordable domain be?

One of the most crucial prerequisites for setting up a successful Internet presence is the domain name. It is what people will mark first when they come across your web page and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain usually contains 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of categories of TLDs that you should contemplate prior to selecting the domain you desire. Your pick should depend on the goal of your website and on its target audience. Let's check the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains intended to denote a given intention - .com (commercial establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informational web pages), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (certain professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should pick the one that would express the purpose of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra steps to show that you are eligible to own such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

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

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a bunch of domain names, which can redirect your web page's visitors to a specific web site like, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the risk of somebody pinching your web page visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with another TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) demonstrate where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at present. You can replace the DNSs of your domain name whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and encounter decent website hosting plans someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the current company's NSs straight away.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain uses a given set of DNSs, all its domain records will point to the same web site hosting company. Some hosting suppliers, though, permit you to edit specific DNS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which demonstrates on which server your web page is hosted, whereas the MX records demonstrate which web hosting server handles the email aliases associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web page designer and he creates an .ASP web page that will be hosted on his personal Windows web server, you may desire to modify solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your e-mail box accounts or any sub-domains like or will still be in your present Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP platform is invented by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be way more secure.
