How valuable can an top domain be?

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

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain typically has 2 components - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few sets of Top-Level Domains that you should consider before you pick the domain you wish. Your choice should be built upon the purpose of your web page and on its target spectators. Let's check out the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names meant to signify a particular function - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informational websites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific professions), etc. As you can see, these TLDs encompass most fields of life, so you should settle on the one that would signify the objective of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them involve extra steps to ascertain that you qualify to own such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of visitors is from a certain country. Many visitors would sooner buy goods or services from a local site, and if your goal is Canada, for example, picking a .ca domain could increase the visits to your web site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a bunch of Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your site's visitors to a particular website such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and decrease the risk of someone swiping your site visitors by registering the same name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) indicate where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at present. You can swap the name servers of your domain name whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and come across good website hosting services someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the present company's NSs instantaneously.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a given pair of DNSs, all its domain name server records will point to the same web space hosting supplier. Some hosting suppliers, though, enable you to edit given domain name records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which designates on which web server your web page is hosted, while the MX records demonstrate which server tackles the email address accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new website designer and he sets up an .ASP web page that will be located on his own Windows server, you may want to change only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your mailbox accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is devised by Microsoft and requests a Windows hosting server, although a Linux server would be far more dependable.
