How important can an top domain be?

One of the most essential requirements for establishing a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will see first when they chance upon your website and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your site's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically has two parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (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 couple of categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate prior to picking the domain name you desire. Your decision should be built upon the aim of your web page and on its target visitors. Let's take a glance at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common TLDs aimed to designate a given function - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (companies), .info (informational web sites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains cover most fields of life, so you should go for the one that would describe the purpose of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them include additional procedures to confirm that you qualify to own such a TLD (.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 Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a certain country. Many individuals would elect to buy goods or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, getting a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your site.

Domain Redirects

You can register a bunch of domains, which can forward your visitors to a specific site such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and reduce the likelihood of someone stealing your site visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) demonstrate 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 present. You can swap the name servers of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the web page hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and find good website hosting packages somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the new provider's DNSs instantly.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a particular set of name servers, all its NS records will direct to the same web hosting supplier. Some web space hosting distributors, however, permit you to edit given domain name records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which reveals on which server your website is located, while the MX records exhibit which web server handles the mail addresses associated with your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new site designer and he constructs an .ASP website that will be located on his personal Windows web hosting server, you may want to alter only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your email accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web hosting account. The .ASP platform is built by Microsoft and requests a Windows server, although a Linux web hosting server would be far more secure.
