Domains Defined

One of the most essential preconditions for running a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what people will note first when they come across your website and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your website's visitors what the site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically is composed of two fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider prior to picking the domain name you wish. Your decision should be built upon the aim of your site and on its target audience. Let's take a gaze at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most widespread TLDs meant to denote a specific purpose - .com (business establishments), .net (networks), .biz (corporations), .info (informative web sites), .org (non-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or relatives), .pro (specific professions), etc. As you can see, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would describe the objective of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domain names, but some of them contain extra steps to demonstrate that you are eligible to have such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Picking such a domain name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many folks would elect to buy goods or services from a local web page, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, settling on a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web site.

Domain Forwarding

You can register different Top-Level Domain Names, which can redirect your site's visitors to a particular web site like, for example. This would increase the traffic and decrease the risk of someone pilfering your site visitors by using the same name with another Top-Level Domain Name - 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, also known as DNS records) reveal where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting company whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can alter the DNSs of your domain whenever you like. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the web hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and discover decent website hosting packages someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the new company's name servers straight away.

Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a specific pair of DNSs, all its NS records will lead to the same website hosting vendor. Some web hosting distributors, however, enable you to modify specific domain records, such as the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which specifies on which hosting server your web site is hosted, while the MX records show which server tackles the electronic mail accounts related to your domain name. For instance, if you appoint a new site designer and he sets up an .ASP website that will be situated on his own Windows web hosting server, you may want to alter solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your e-mails or any sub-domains such as or will still be in your current Linux web hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and requests a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux server would be way more reliable.
