How important can an top domain name be?

One of the most essential preconditions for having a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will discern first when they visit 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 web site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain traditionally contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few categories of Top-Level Domains that you should examine prior to choosing the domain name you wish. Your decision should be based on the intention of your web site and on its target visitors. Let's analyze the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains meant to designate a given intention - .com (commercial entities), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informational websites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (given walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would portray the aim of your web page best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them contain additional requirements to prove that you qualify to register such a Top-Level Domain Name (.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. Opting for such a domain is good if your target group of site visitors is from a particular country. Many people would like to buy commodities or services from a local web site, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, opting for a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register several domains, which can send your visitors to a specific site such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and lower the risk of someone snatching your visitors by using the same SLD with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) show where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at present. You can switch the NSs of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and detect decent website hosting solutions somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the current company's DNSs immediately.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a certain pair of NSs, all its domain name server records will direct to the same webspace hosting distributor. Some hosting companies, though, permit you to modify given domain records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which indicates on which hosting server your website is situated, while the MX records disclose which web hosting server tackles the mail aliases related to your domain name. For example, if you take on a new web designer and he sets up an .ASP website that will be hosted on his private Windows server, you may want to edit just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your email mailboxes or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux hosting account. The .ASP platform is built by Microsoft and requests a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux web hosting server would be far more reliable.
