How vital is to find cheap domains?

One of the most vital prerequisites for running a successful online presence is the domain name. It is what people will observe first when they stumble upon your site and what they will link you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that informs your website's visitors what the web site is about.

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain typically contains two constituents - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a few categories of Top-Level Domains that you should consider before you select the domain name you want. Your selection should be built upon the intention of your web site and on its target viewers. Let's analyze the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most popular Top-Level Domain Names intended to designate a particular intention - .com (commercial entities), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informational websites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (certain professions), and so on. As you can see, these Top-Level Domains encompass most spheres of life, so you should settle on the one that would portray the purpose of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domains, but some of them include extra requirements to confirm that you are eligible to register 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 domain name is good if your target group of website visitors is from a given country. Many guys would want to buy commodities or services from a local site, and if your target is Canada, for instance, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web page.

Domain Redirects

You can register a bunch of domain names, which can forward your web site's visitors to a certain web site like domain.com, for example. This would raise the traffic and reduce the likelihood of somebody stealing your site visitors by registering the same name with a different TLD - if you are not utilizing a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) specify where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the web hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can switch the DNSs of your domain at all times. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain name and stumble upon decent website hosting plans someplace else at a later time, you can point your domain to the current company's name servers right away.

Name Server Records (DNS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name uses a certain pair of DNSs, all its NS records will lead to the same web page hosting supplier. Some web page hosting distributors, though, enable you to modify specific domain records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an Internet Protocol address, which exhibits on which web server your web site is situated, whereas the MX records display which server tackles the email aliases related to your domain name. For instance, if you engage a new site designer and he designs an .ASP site that will be situated on his own Windows server, you may want to change only the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, 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 current Linux web site hosting account. The .ASP platform is devised by Microsoft and requires a Windows server, although a Linux server would be far more stable.
