One of the most essential preconditions for setting up a successful Internet presence is the domain. It is what people will mark first when they discover your website and what they will identify you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that notifies your site's visitors what the website is about.
Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)
We offer more than 140 tlds
A domain traditionally contains 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of categories of TLDs that you should examine before you select the domain you desire. Your decision should depend on the goal of your website and on its target spectators. Let's take a look at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most popular Top-Level Domains aimed to designate a specific function - .com (business establishments), .net (network infrastructures), .biz (firms), .info (informative web pages), .org (organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (persons or families), .pro (given professions), etc. As you can see, these TLDs cover most realms of life, so you should choose the one that would signify the objective of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such domains, but some of them involve additional requirements to ascertain that you qualify to have such a Top-Level Domain (.mobi and .pro, for instance).
Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)
The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific domain names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Selecting such a domain is good if your target group of website visitors is from a particular country. Many folks would rather purchase commodities or services from a local web site, and if your target is Canada, for instance, getting a .ca domain could boost the visits to your web site.
You can register a bunch of domains, which can send your web page's visitors to a specific web page such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and decrease the probability of someone pinching your visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain with a different TLD - if you are not using a trademark.
Name Servers (NSs)
Each TLD 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 firm whose name servers (NSs, also known as DNSs) it is utilizing at present. You can modify the NSs of your domain name whenever you want. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and encounter good website hosting packages someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the new company's NSs immediately.
Domain Server Records (NS Records)
In general, as long as your domain name utilizes a given set of DNSs, all its domain records will point to the same website hosting company. Some website hosting firms, however, permit you to modify given records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which reveals on which web hosting server your web site is hosted, whereas the MX records demonstrate which hosting server tackles the e-mail address accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web page designer and he sets up an .ASP website that will be accommodated on his own Windows server, you may wish to modify only the Internet Protocol address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will point to the Windows server, but your mailbox accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux web hosting account. The .ASP platform is designed by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows web hosting server, although a Linux web hosting server would be way more reliable.
