    How And When To Set NameServers For Domain Names

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    Nameservers are in many ways like a telephone directory. When you need to know someone's address or phone number, the first thing you do is pick up a telephone directory (or use the internet or by phone, these days).When you find the name of the person in the book, you're presented with their address and phone number (unless they're ex-directory). Nameservers are the telephone books of the internet.

    When you need to get to a website, and you have the domain name - ie., the first thing you do is enter the name into your browser - Internet Explorer, Mozilla, etc. What people don't realize is that a domain name is not the actual address of the website. The same as someone's name isn't their address. A website's address is called an IP address. The nameserver links the two.

    I can see you asking "what the heck is an IP address?". IP address stands for Internet Protocol address. It is a unique address given to each individual website and computer that is linked to the internet. It is in the form of or similar, where the xs are a number.
