Change Domain Nameservers – Client Area

Learn How to Change Domain Nameservers in Client Area. A Domain Name System (DNS) is the system that translates a domain name into an IP address. DNS forms the foundation for the Internet. DNS records are used to map each web service to the correct server. Each domain name has a collection of DNS records called a zone file. A Nameserver is a computer where DNS records are stored.

Nameservers play a big part in connecting a URL with a server’s IP address in a much more human-friendly way. Nameservers look like any other domain name. There are a minimum of two nameservers (though you can use more). Here’s an example of what they look like:

ns1.extilum.net
ns2.extilum.net
