How crucial can an top domain be?

One of the most crucial preconditions for building a successful web presence is the domain. It is what people will mark first when they visit your web page and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web page's visitors what the website is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically consists of 2 parts - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are several sets of TLDs that you should examine prior to picking the domain you wish. Your choice should be based on the goal of your site and on its target viewers. Let's take a glimpse at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common TLDs meant to denote a specific intention - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informative sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .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 depict the purpose of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them include extra steps to show that you qualify to register such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Registering such a Top-Level Domain is good if your target group of site visitors is from a certain country. Many folks would elect to buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for example, getting a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your web page.

Domain Name Forwarding

You can register a number of TLDs, which can forward your web page's visitors to a certain site such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and reduce the chance of somebody stealing your website visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another TLD - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain Name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) specify where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing now. You can substitute the DNSs of your domain whenever you want. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the site hosting service itself from another. Thus, if you register your domain and detect decent website hosting packages somewhere else afterwards, you can point your domain to the current company's name servers at once.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain utilizes a given set of DNSs, all its domain records will point to the same web hosting distributor. Some web space hosting providers, though, enable you to edit certain domain records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which exhibits on which web server your site is located, while the MX records indicate which hosting server tackles the mail addresses related to your domain name. For example, if you engage a new web site designer and he creates an .ASP website that will be situated on his personal Windows server, you may want to modify just the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. So, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows server, but your e-mail box accounts or any sub-domains such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux hosting account. The .ASP environment is developed by Microsoft and requests a Windows web server, although a Linux web server would be way more reliable.
