How valuable is to find cheap domain?

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

Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)

A domain as a rule is composed of two fragments - a Top-Level Domain Name (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain (SLD). If you have domain.com, for instance, ".com" is the Top-Level Domain Name and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of groups of TLDs that you should contemplate before you pick the domain you wish. Your selection should be built upon the purpose of your website and on its target audience. Let's investigate the gTLDs, or generic TLDs - these are the most typical Top-Level Domains aimed to indicate a specific function - .com (business organizations), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative websites), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia-Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (specific professions), and so on. As you can perceive, these TLDs encompass most spheres of life, so you should go for the one that would explain the aim of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such Top-Level Domains, but some of them involve extra requirements to demonstrate that you are eligible to have such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code TLDs, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Choosing such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a particular country. Many people would like to purchase goods or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for example, opting for a .ca TLD could increase the visits to your site.

Domain Forwarding

You can register several Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your web site's visitors to a given web site like domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the possibility of somebody stealing your visitors by using the same Second-Level Domain with another TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.

Name Servers (NSs)

Each and every Top-Level Domain has domain records. The name server records (NS records, aka DNS records) display where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting supplier whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can change the name servers of your domain whenever you wish. You can have your domain registered with one provider and get the web space hosting service itself from another. Hence, if you register your domain and stumble upon decent website hosting solutions somewhere else later, you can point your domain name to the present provider's DNSs instantly.

Name Server Records (NS Records)

In general, as long as your domain uses a particular set of DNSs, all its domain name records will direct to the same website hosting distributor. Some website hosting companies, though, allow you to modify specific name server records, like the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which reveals on which web hosting server your site is hosted, whereas the MX records designate which web server handles the email aliases related to your domain name. For instance, if you hire a new web designer and he build an .ASP site that will be located on his private Windows web server, you may want to change solely the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Hence, www.domain.com will point to the Windows web server, but your e-mailbox 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 environment is invented by Microsoft and necessitates a Windows server, even though a Linux hosting server would be far more reliable.
