What are Domain Names
One of the most crucial prerequisites for having a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what people will discern first when they stumble upon your site and what they will identify you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the website is about.
Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)
We offer more than 40 tlds
A domain name traditionally consists of 2 fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain Name. There are a few sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you choose the domain name you desire. Your pick should be based on the intention of your site and on its target spectators. Let's have a peek at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains intended to show a specific function - .com (commercial establishments), .net (networks), .biz (companies), .info (informational web pages), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or families), .pro (particular professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domain Names encompass most spheres of life, so you should select the one that would designate the intention of your website best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them involve extra procedures to show that you are eligible to own such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).
Country-code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs)
The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a domain name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a specific country. Many folks would elect to buy goods or services from a local website, and if your goal is Canada, for instance, selecting a .ca domain name could boost the visits to your web page.
You can register different domains, which can forward your site's visitors to a particular site such as domain.com, for instance. This would raise the traffic and lower the chance of somebody swiping your site visitors by registering the same Second-Level Domain Name with another Top-Level Domain Name - if you are not availing of a trademark.
Name Servers (NSs)
Every TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) indicate where the domain name is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using now. You can switch the NSs of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain name registered with one firm and get the web hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and stumble upon good website hosting packages someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the present company's NSs straight off.
Domain Name Server Records (NS Records)
In general, as long as your domain uses a specific pair of name servers, all its domain records will point to the same web hosting vendor. Some web hosting suppliers, however, permit you to modify given domain records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain name. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which shows on which web hosting server your web page is located, whereas the MX records exhibit which hosting server tackles the email mailbox accounts associated with your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web page designer and he constructs an .ASP web site that will be located on his private Windows web server, you may want to change only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web hosting server, but your mails or any sub-domains like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your present Linux website hosting account. The .ASP environment is designed by Microsoft and demands a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux server would be way more secure.
