How crucial can an top domain name be?

One of the most important requirements for building a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will perceive first when they come across your site and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain usually has two constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine prior to choosing the domain name you want. Your selection should depend on the purpose of your site and on its target audience. Let's check the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most widespread TLDs intended to express a specific function - .com (commercial organizations), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative web pages), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (given walks of life), etc. As you can see, these TLDs encompass most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would show the purpose of your web page best. There is no restriction as to who can register such TLDs, but some of them involve additional requirements to show that you are eligible to register such a TLD (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of web page visitors is from a given country. Many persons would like to buy commodities or services from a local web site, and if your target is Canada, for example, getting a .ca domain could increase the visits to your site.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register several domains, which can send your web site's visitors to a certain web page like domain.com, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the risk of someone swiping your web site visitors by registering the same SLD with a different TLD - if you are not using a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) demonstrate where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting vendor whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using now. You can change the NSs of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and encounter good website hosting plans somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the new company's NSs instantly.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a specific set of name servers, all its name server records will lead to the same web site hosting provider. Some web site hosting suppliers, however, allow you to edit given DNS records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which displays on which web hosting server your web page is situated, while the MX records disclose which server tackles the e-mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you appoint a new web site designer and he develops an .ASP website that will be hosted on his personal Windows web server, you may wish to alter only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your e-mail accounts or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web space hosting account. The .ASP platform is devised by Microsoft and requests a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be way more secure.
