How vital can an top domain name be?

One of the most important preconditions for setting up a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what visitors will perceive first when they visit your website and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web page's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain typically is composed of two fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (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 a few sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider prior to picking the domain you desire. Your choice should be built upon the goal of your site and on its target audience. Let's check out the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common TLDs aimed to show a specific purpose - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative web sites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or families), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can see, these TLDs cover most spheres of life, so you should go for the one that would portray the objective of your website best. There is no limitation as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them include additional procedures to confirm that you qualify to own such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a TLD is good if your target group of website visitors is from a certain country. Many individuals would sooner purchase goods or services from a local website, and if your target is Canada, for example, getting a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your website.

Domain Redirects

You can register a number of Top-Level Domain Names, which can send your web site's visitors to a certain web page such as, for instance. This would boost the traffic and reduce the chance of someone swiping your web page visitors by registering the same name with another TLD - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) reveal where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can modify the DNSs of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the site hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and find decent website hosting solutions someplace else afterwards, you can point your domain to the current provider's DNSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a certain set of DNSs, all its domain records will lead to the same site hosting firm. Some webspace hosting vendors, though, allow you to modify certain NS records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which specifies on which web hosting server your website is located, whereas the MX records reveal which server tackles the email accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new web designer and he sets up an .ASP web page that will be located on his personal Windows hosting server, you may want to change solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, will direct to the Windows web server, but your e-mails or any sub-domains like or will still be in your present Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and requires a Windows web server, even though a Linux hosting server would be way more dependable.
