How important can an top domain be?

One of the most essential requirements for setting up a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what people will spot first when they visit your site and what they will relate you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your web site's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name traditionally has 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the SLD. There are several categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you pick the domain name you desire. Your choice should be built upon the aim of your web page and on its target audience. Let's review the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most popular TLDs aimed to show a specific function - .com (commercial enterprises), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informational web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals or families), .pro (certain professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains cover most fields of life, so you should choose the one that would describe the intention of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them involve additional requirements to ascertain that you are eligible to own such a domain (.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. Registering such a domain name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a given country. Many visitors would like to purchase commodities or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for example, picking a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Forwarding

You can register a bunch of domain names, which can forward your website's visitors to a given site such as, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the possibility of someone pinching your web page visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every domain name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using at present. You can alter the NSs of your domain name whenever you wish. You can have your domain name registered with one company and get the hosting service itself from another. In this way, if you register your domain and find decent website hosting services somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the present company's DNSs at once.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain name uses a specific pair of name servers, all its DNS records will direct to the same webspace hosting provider. Some web space hosting providers, however, enable you to edit given name server records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which details on which web hosting server your web site is located, while the MX records indicate which hosting server handles the e-mail addresses associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web designer and he build an .ASP website that will be located on his private Windows hosting server, you may want to modify just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, will direct to the Windows server, but your e-mail box accounts or any sub-domain names like or will still be in your present Linux site hosting account. The .ASP platform is developed by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux hosting server would be way more reliable.
