How crucial is to find cheap domain?

One of the most important requirements for setting up a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what visitors will notice first when they chance upon your web page and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web page's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain typically consists of two constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of groups of TLDs that you should consider prior to picking the domain name you wish. Your selection should be based on the aim of your website and on its target audience. Let's have a glimpse at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular TLDs intended to indicate a particular function - .com (business establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informative web sites), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (particular walks of life), etc. As you can see, these TLDs cover most spheres of life, so you should go for the one that would illustrate the purpose of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain additional steps to confirm that you qualify to keep such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of site visitors is from a given country. Many people would rather purchase goods or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Name Redirects

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

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) show where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can switch the NSs of your domain name at any time. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web page hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and come across decent website hosting packages someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the current provider's DNSs instantly.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a specific pair of name servers, all its domain records will direct to the same site hosting vendor. Some hosting firms, though, allow you to edit specific records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which demonstrates on which web server your site is located, whereas the MX records demonstrate which web hosting server tackles the mail accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you take on a new site designer and he develops an .ASP website that will be hosted on his own Windows web server, you may wish to edit just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, www.domain.com will point to the Windows hosting server, but your email address accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP environment is developed by Microsoft and requests a Windows hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more reliable.
