How crucial is to find the best domain name?

One of the most vital requirements for having a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what visitors will notice first when they visit your website and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your web site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name typically has 2 components - 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 SLD. There are a couple of groups of Top-Level Domains that you should examine prior to picking the domain you desire. Your selection should rest on the purpose of your site and on its target audience. Let's have a look at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names aimed to express a given purpose - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative resources), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (particular walks of life), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most realms of life, so you should go for the one that would signify the aim of your website best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them contain extra procedures to confirm that you qualify to register such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many visitors would want to buy goods or services from a local site, and if your target is Canada, for instance, picking a .ca domain could boost the visits to your website.

Domain Redirection

You can register a bunch of TLDs, which can forward your web page's visitors to a specific site like domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the chance of someone swiping your web site visitors by using the same SLD with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) exhibit where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting company whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using now. You can swap the DNSs of your domain whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web space hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and detect good website hosting packages somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the present provider's NSs right away.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a given set of NSs, all its NS records will point to the same web hosting distributor. Some web hosting providers, though, allow you to edit specific NS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which reveals on which hosting server your web site is hosted, whereas the MX records demonstrate which hosting server handles the e-mail address accounts related to your domain name. For example, if you take on a new website designer and he develops an .ASP website that will be located on his personal Windows server, you may want to change solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. In this way, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your mailbox accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and requests a Windows server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more secure.
