How crucial can an top domain be?

One of the most crucial prerequisites for having a successful online presence is the domain. It is what people will notice first when they chance upon your website and what they will link you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your web page's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are several groups of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you select the domain name you desire. Your decision should be based on the intention of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's take a peek at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical Top-Level Domain Names intended to show a specific intention - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informational websites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (specific professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most fields of life, so you should pick the one that would portray the purpose of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domains, but some of them include additional procedures to ascertain that you are eligible to keep such a 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 TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a domain name is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a certain country. Many visitors would rather purchase commodities or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, registering a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web site.

URL Redirects

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

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every domain name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can modify the DNSs of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the web site hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain and detect decent website hosting packages someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the current company's DNSs instantly.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a specific set of NSs, all its domain records will point to the same website hosting vendor. Some web site hosting providers, however, enable you to modify certain name server records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which web server your web site is located, while the MX records display which server handles the email accounts related to your domain name. For example, if you appoint a new website designer and he designs an .ASP website that will be located on his own Windows web server, you may wish to alter only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Thus, will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your mails or any sub-domains such as or will still be in your present Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP environment is invented by Microsoft and requests a Windows hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more secure.
