How important is to locate cheap domain?

One of the most vital requirements for creating a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will perceive first when they stumble upon your site and what they will associate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your website's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally has two parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (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 Name. There are a few categories of TLDs that you should consider before you pick the domain you wish. Your choice should depend on the intention of your website and on its target spectators. Let's take a glance at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domain Names aimed to denote a specific intention - .com (business enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informative resources), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (particular professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains cover most realms of life, so you should settle on the one that would illustrate the intention of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them include extra steps to confirm that you qualify to register such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a domain is good if your target group of visitors is from a specific country. Many visitors would want to purchase commodities or services from a local web site, and if your target is Canada, for instance, picking a .ca TLD could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Redirects

You can register several TLDs, which can redirect your site's visitors to a specific website like domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the possibility of someone pilfering your website visitors by using the same SLD with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain name has domain name 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 firm whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can alter the name servers of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web space hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain and come across decent website hosting packages someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain to the current provider's NSs instantaneously.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a certain pair of DNSs, all its domain name records will lead to the same web space hosting distributor. Some site hosting suppliers, however, enable you to edit specific domain records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which exhibits on which web hosting server your web page is located, while the MX records show which web server tackles the mail accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new website designer and he build an .ASP web site that will be hosted on his private Windows web server, you may desire to change only 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 box accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux site hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and calls for a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more secure.
