How crucial can an top domain be?

One of the most vital preconditions for running a successful Internet presence is the domain name. It is what people will mark first when they stumble upon your web site and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that notifies your web site's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically is composed of 2 fragments - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider before you pick the domain you desire. Your decision should be based on the intention of your site and on its target visitors. Let's have a glimpse at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains meant to signify a specific purpose - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative websites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain professions), and so on. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most fields of life, so you should pick the one that would show the aim of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra requirements to demonstrate that you qualify to own such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a TLD is good if your target group of website visitors is from a certain country. Many people would like to buy commodities or services from a local site, and if your target is Canada, for example, settling on a .ca domain could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Redirection

You can register a number of Top-Level Domain Names, which can forward your website's visitors to a given site such as, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the probability of somebody stealing your site visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) disclose where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting firm whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can swap the name servers of your domain at all times. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the website hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and detect decent website hosting services someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the new provider's NSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain utilizes a particular set of NSs, all its name server records will point to the same web space hosting provider. Some website hosting companies, however, allow you to edit certain records, such as 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 hosted, while the MX records exhibit which web hosting server handles the e-mailbox accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you engage a new website designer and he develops an .ASP website that will be situated on his private Windows server, you may wish to modify only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, will direct to the Windows web server, but your email boxes or any sub-domain names such as or will still be in your present Linux webspace hosting account. The .ASP environment is developed by Microsoft and requests a Windows hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be way more reliable.
