How vital is to locate cheap domain name?

One of the most important prerequisites for creating a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will see first when they come across your web page and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally contains 2 fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are several sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider prior to selecting the domain you wish. Your pick should rest on the goal of your web page and on its target audience. Let's have a glance at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular TLDs aimed to express a specific function - .com (commercial entities), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative websites), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these TLDs cover most realms of life, so you should opt for the one that would depict the intention of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them involve additional steps to show that you qualify to keep such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Selecting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a certain country. Many persons would want to buy commodities or services from a local website, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca domain could increase the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domain Names, which can forward your website's visitors to a certain website such as, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the chance of somebody stealing your site visitors by using the same SLD with another TLD - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) exhibit where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using now. You can replace the DNSs of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and find good website hosting solutions someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present provider's DNSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a given pair of name servers, all its name server records will lead to the same site hosting firm. Some web hosting providers, though, allow you to modify specific DNS records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which indicates on which server your site is located, while the MX records indicate which web server tackles the mail accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new website designer and he creates an .ASP website that will be located on his personal Windows web server, you may wish to alter just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Thus, will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your email mailboxes or any sub-domains such as or will still be in your present Linux hosting account. The .ASP platform is devised by Microsoft and calls for a Windows server, although a Linux web server would be far more dependable.
