How vital can an top domain be?

One of the most important prerequisites for building a successful online presence is the domain. It is what visitors will see first when they visit your website and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain name usually has 2 components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domains that you should consider prior to choosing the domain you desire. Your choice should depend on the intention of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's check the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common TLDs meant to show a specific function - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (qualified professionals), etc. As you can perceive, these TLDs encompass most realms of life, so you should settle on the one that would designate the aim of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them contain extra steps to demonstrate that you qualify to keep such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a TLD is good if your target group of visitors is from a specific country. Many folks would rather purchase goods or services from a local site, and if your target is Canada, for example, picking a .ca TLD could increase the visits to your website.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your website's visitors to a given web page like, for instance. This would raise the traffic and lower the possibility of somebody pinching your website visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and 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, i.e. they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can modify the name servers of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one company and get the web space hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and stumble upon good website hosting plans somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present company's name servers straight off.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a certain set of NSs, all its domain records will direct to the same webspace hosting provider. Some web site hosting providers, however, allow you to modify certain DNS 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 hosting server your web page is located, while the MX records exhibit which hosting server handles the mail addresses associated with your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new website designer and he designs an .ASP site that will be located on his private Windows hosting server, you may want to edit solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, will point to the Windows hosting server, but your e-mailboxes or any sub-domain names such as or will still be in your present Linux website hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and demands a Windows web server, even though a Linux web server would be way more reliable.
