How important is to find cheap domain?

One of the most important preconditions for establishing a successful Internet presence is the domain name. It is what people will note first when they visit your web site and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your web page's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally is composed of two parts - a Top-Level Domain (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 sets of TLDs that you should contemplate prior to selecting the domain you desire. Your selection should be based on the purpose of your website and on its target spectators. Let's explore the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains meant to designate a particular intention - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informative web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains cover most realms of life, so you should go for the one that would explain the purpose of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra procedures to prove that you are eligible to have 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 Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a TLD is good if your target group of site visitors is from a given country. Many visitors would prefer to buy commodities or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for example, picking a .ca domain name could increase the visits to your website.

URL Redirection

You can register several TLDs, which can send your visitors to a particular web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and reduce the risk of someone pinching your visitors by using the same name with another TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) reveal where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can substitute the NSs of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one company and get the web hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain name and discover good website hosting packages somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the current company's NSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a certain pair of NSs, all its domain name records will direct to the same web site hosting provider. Some hosting distributors, however, permit you to modify certain domain name server records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which shows on which web hosting server your web site is hosted, whereas the MX records exhibit which hosting server handles the e-mail aliases associated with your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web designer and he develops an .ASP web site that will be situated on his personal Windows web hosting server, you may want to alter just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your emails or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, even though a Linux web server would be far more secure.
