Domain Names

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

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name as a rule contains 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine prior to picking the domain name you desire. Your selection should be built upon the aim of your web page and on its target audience. Let's take a glance at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread Top-Level Domains intended to show a particular intention - .com (business entities), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (businesses), .info (informative web sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (certain professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names cover most spheres of life, so you should select the one that would express the intention of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them involve additional requirements to prove that you are eligible to keep such a TLD (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific TLDs. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many people would want to buy goods or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, choosing a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your visitors to a certain web site like domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and lower the chance of somebody swiping your web site visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain Name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of 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) show where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at present. You can change the DNSs of your domain at any time. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web page hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and encounter decent web site hosting solutions someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the present provider's NSs right away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a given set of NSs, all its domain name server records will direct to the same site hosting company. Some web hosting vendors, however, permit you to edit given name server records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which details on which hosting server your web page is located, whereas the MX records disclose which hosting server handles the email aliases associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web page designer and he build an .ASP website that will be located on his private Windows hosting server, you may wish to alter solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows server, but your e-mailbox accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux website hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and calls for a Windows server, even though a Linux web server would be far more reliable.
