How valuable is to find cheap domain names?

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

Generic Top-Level Domain Names (gTLDs)

A domain name typically has 2 constituents - a Top-Level Domain (TLD) and a Second-Level Domain Name (SLD). If you have domain.com, for example, ".com" is the TLD and "domain" is the SLD. There are a couple of sets of Top-Level Domain Names that you should examine before you choose the domain you wish. Your choice should rest on the intention of your web page and on its target viewers. Let's study the gTLDs, or generic Top-Level Domains - these are the most common TLDs aimed to show a particular intention - .com (commercial entities), .net (networks), .biz (businesses), .info (informational web pages), .org (not-for-profit organizations), .mobi (mobile devices), .asia (the Asia Pacific region), .name (persons or families), .pro (specific walks of life), etc. As you can perceive, these TLDs cover most realms of life, so you should choose the one that would depict the aim of your web site best. There is no restriction as to who can register such domains, but some of them contain additional requirements to demonstrate that you are eligible to own such a domain (.mobi and .pro, for example).

Country-code Top-Level Domain Names (ccTLDs)

The ccTLDs, or country-code Top-Level Domain Names, are country-specific Top-Level Domain Names. Each country has its own ccTLD. Getting such a Top-Level Domain Name is good if your target group of web site visitors is from a certain country. Many visitors would like to buy commodities or services from a local web page, and if your aim is Canada, for example, registering a .ca Top-Level Domain could increase the visits to your web site.

Domain Redirection

You can register a bunch of domains, which can send your website's visitors to a given web site such as domain.com, for instance. This would boost the traffic and lower the chance of someone pinching your web 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)

Each and every TLD has domain records. The name server records (NS records, a.k.a. DNS records) indicate where the domain is hosted, i.e. they point to the hosting firm whose name servers (NSs, aka DNSs) it is using at the moment. You can change the NSs of your domain at any time. You can have your domain name registered with one provider and get the web space hosting service itself from another. So, if you register your domain and find good website hosting packages someplace else later, you can point your domain name to the new company's name servers right away.

Domain Name Server Records (DNS Records)

In general, as long as your domain utilizes a certain set of name servers, all its domain name server records will point to the same web hosting distributor. Some website hosting vendors, however, enable you to edit given NS records, among them the A records and the MX records of your domain. The A record is an IP address, which exhibits on which server your web page is located, whereas the MX records reveal which server handles the email addresses associated with your domain name. For example, if you hire a new web site designer and he build an .ASP website that will be located on his private Windows web hosting server, you may wish to alter just the IP address (the A record) but not the MX records of your domain. Thus, www.domain.com will direct to the Windows web hosting server, but your electronic mail accounts or any sub-domain names like forum.domain.com or shop.domain.com will still be in your current Linux site hosting account. The .ASP environment is invented by Microsoft and calls for a Windows hosting server, even though a Linux hosting server would be way more dependable.
