How valuable can an top domain be?

One of the most vital requirements for building a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will notice first when they discover your website and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally contains 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are several categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you pick the domain name you desire. Your selection should rest on the purpose of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's investigate the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains aimed to denote a given function - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informative websites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (certain walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these TLDs encompass most spheres of life, so you should choose the one that would signify the intention of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them include additional requirements to confirm that you are eligible to register such a TLD (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a specific country. Many guys would prefer to buy commodities or services from a local web site, and if your goal is Canada, for example, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Redirects

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domain Names, which can send your web site's visitors to a given web site such as domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and decrease the probability of somebody swiping your website visitors by registering the same SLD with another TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) reveal where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can alter the DNSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web page hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and find good website hosting solutions somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the new company's DNSs at once.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a specific set of name servers, all its DNS records will lead to the same site hosting vendor. Some web page hosting providers, however, permit you to modify specific domain name records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which server your site is situated, whereas the MX records designate which web server tackles the e-mail accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web site designer and he creates an .ASP web page that will be situated on his personal Windows server, you may wish to modify solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows server, but your emails or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is created by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, although a Linux web server would be way more dependable.
