DNS & Name Server management

What are Nameservers?

Nameservers are basically online phonebooks for web domains. These servers are responsible for translating names of websites into their corresponding IP addresses.

Why do I need to know about my Nameservers?

Nameservers tell your domain who controls it. If you change your nameservers, you change what source your domain receives instructions for. This is vital because it affects where your domain points for mail, loading websites, and more.

Why would I need to change my Nameservers?

If you want to control your domain instructions (DNS) from your cPanel account on HostHuski or your HostHuski account, you need to point your domain to our nameservers.
