How important is to discover cheap domains?

One of the most crucial requirements for running a successful online presence is the domain. It is what people will note first when they stumble upon your site and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your website's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain usually contains two fragments - 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 Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of categories of Top-Level Domains that you should consider before you choose the domain name you want. Your choice should be based on the intention of your web site and on its target spectators. Let's take a look at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular Top-Level Domain Names aimed to express a particular function - .com (commercial entities), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), and so on. As you can see, these TLDs cover most spheres of life, so you should go for the one that would designate the intention of your website best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them include additional steps to prove that you qualify to have such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Selecting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a given country. Many people would elect to buy commodities or services from a local website, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca domain could increase the visits to your website.

Domain Forwarding

You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can send your web page's visitors to a given web page like domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and lower the likelihood of somebody pinching your web site visitors by using the same name with a different Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using now. You can substitute the NSs of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the website hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain name and stumble upon good website hosting solutions someplace else later, you can point your domain to the current provider's DNSs instantly.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a particular pair of NSs, all its records will point to the same web site hosting supplier. Some web hosting companies, however, enable you to edit certain domain records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which demonstrates on which server your site is located, whereas the MX records exhibit which server handles the e-mail aliases related to your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new web site designer and he devises an .ASP web page that will be situated on his own Windows web server, you may desire to modify only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your mails or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux website hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and requires a Windows web server, although a Linux server would be far more reliable.
