How important can an top domain be?
One of the most vital prerequisites for having a successful web presence is the domain name. It is what visitors will mark first when they visit your site and what they will associate you with. The domain name should be easy to memorize, but should also be something that tells your web site's visitors what the web site is about.
Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)
A domain name traditionally has two components - 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 several groups of Top-Level Domain Names that you should consider before you choose the domain you wish. Your choice should be based on the intention of your website and on its target visitors. Let's have a glance at the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domain Names - these are the most typical TLDs meant to denote a specific purpose - .com (business entities), .net (networks), .biz (firms), .info (informative sites), .org (organizations of a non-commercial character), .mobi (handheld devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific), .name (individuals or relatives), .pro (certain professions), etc. As you can perceive, these Top-Level Domains cover most fields of life, so you should opt for the one that would indicate the objective of your site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domain names, but some of them contain extra steps to verify that you qualify 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 Domains, are country-specific Top-Level Domains. Each country has its own ccTLD. Settling on such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of visitors is from a specific country. Many visitors would want to purchase commodities or services from a local website, and if your aim is Canada, for instance, settling on a .ca Top-Level Domain Name could boost the visits to your website.
You can register a number of Top-Level Domains, which can redirect your site's visitors to a particular web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would increase the traffic and reduce the possibility of someone swiping your visitors by registering the same name with a different TLD - if you are not availing of a trademark.
Name Servers (NSs)
Each TLD has domain name records. The name server records (NS records, also known as DNS records) specify where the domain is hosted, in other words they point to the hosting distributor whose name servers (NSs, a.k.a. DNSs) it is utilizing at the moment. You can swap the name servers of your domain name at any moment. You can have your domain registered with one firm and get the hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain name and encounter decent website hosting services somewhere else at a later time, you can point your domain name to the new provider's NSs immediately.
Name Server Records (DNS Records)
In general, as long as your domain uses a particular set of DNSs, all its domain records will point to the same web page hosting vendor. Some web space hosting providers, however, allow you to modify certain NS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which designates on which hosting server your web page is hosted, whereas the MX records exhibit which hosting server tackles the email aliases related to your domain name. For example, if you hire a new site designer and he develops an .ASP web site that will be situated on his own Windows hosting server, you may wish to change just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain name. Hence, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web server, but your email box accounts or any sub-domain names such as forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux web hosting account. The .ASP platform is built by Microsoft and requires a Windows hosting server, although a Linux server would be way more dependable.
