How valuable is to find cheap domain?

One of the most important prerequisites for establishing a successful online presence is the domain. It is what people will perceive first when they come across your site and what they will link you with. The domain should be easy to remember, but should also be something that informs your website's visitors what the web page is about.

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name usually contains two components - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have, for instance, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are several groups of Top-Level Domain Names that you should contemplate prior to picking the domain you wish. Your pick should be based on the goal of your website and on its target spectators. Let's have a peek at the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most common Top-Level Domain Names intended to denote a given function - .com (commercial entities), .net (network infrastructures), .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), and so on. As you can perceive, these TLDs encompass most fields of life, so you should select the one that would designate the intention of your site best. There is no limitation as to who can register such Top-Level Domain Names, but some of them include additional steps to demonstrate that you are eligible to have such a Top-Level Domain Name (.mobi and .pro, for instance).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a domain is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a given country. Many persons would like to purchase commodities or services from a local website, and if your aim is Canada, for example, choosing a .ca Top-Level Domain could boost the visits to your web page.

URL Redirects

You can register different Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your web page's visitors to a given website like, for instance. This would boost the traffic and lower the risk of someone stealing your web page visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with another Top-Level Domain - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Every domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) disclose where the domain name is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can alter the DNSs of your domain name at all times. You can have your domain name registered with one company and get the webspace hosting service itself from another. Therefore, if you register your domain and encounter decent website hosting packages somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain to the present company's NSs at once.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

On the whole, as long as your domain name utilizes a specific pair of name servers, all its NS records will direct to the same website hosting distributor. Some hosting companies, though, allow you to modify certain domain records, including the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which shows on which server your web site is located, while the MX records display which server tackles the electronic mail accounts associated with your domain name. For example, if you engage a new web site designer and he devises an .ASP web site that will be accommodated on his private Windows web server, you may want to modify just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. So, will point to the Windows web server, but your e-mailbox accounts or any sub-domains such as or will still be in your current Linux site hosting account. The .ASP environment is devised by Microsoft and demands a Windows server, although a Linux web server would be way more reliable.
