Domain Name Registration

One of the most vital requirements for establishing a successful online presence is the domain name registration. It is what visitors will note first when they stumble upon your website and what they will relate you with. The domain name should be easy to remember, but should also be something that tells your visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain usually has 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several categories of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you select the domain name you wish. Your pick should rest on the goal of your web page and on its target spectators. Let's check out the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains intended to signify a given intention - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informative web sites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains encompass most fields of life, so you should opt for the one that would explain the purpose of your web site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them involve extra procedures to demonstrate that you are eligible to keep such a domain name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (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 Name is good if your target group of site visitors is from a specific country. Many people would sooner purchase commodities or services from a local website, and if your goal is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could increase the visits to your website.

Domain Redirects

You can register several TLDs, which can redirect your site's visitors to a particular site such as domain.com, for example. This would boost the traffic and decrease the chance of somebody stealing your web site visitors by registering the same SLD with a different Top-Level Domain - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each domain name has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) display where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the web hosting provider whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is using now. You can modify the DNSs of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain name and stumble upon good shared hosting services someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the current company's name servers right away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain utilizes a certain set of DNSs, all its domain name server records will direct to the same site hosting distributor. Some website hosting distributors, though, allow you to modify certain domain records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an IP address, which specifies on which web hosting server your website is located, while the MX records disclose which web server handles the e-mail accounts related to your domain. For example, if you take on a new web site designer and he constructs an .ASP web site that will be accommodated on his private Windows hosting server, you may wish to edit solely the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows hosting server, but your e-mail accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web page hosting account. The .ASP environment is built by Microsoft and requires a Windows hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be far more dependable.
