What is a nameserver?

A nameserver, such as our ns1.selectwebdns.co.uk and ns2.selectwebdns.co.uk is an address you set on your domain name to point it to the hosting services you use. The address you set often depends on where your website is hosted. 

For example, so your visitor can find your website the domain name must be set-up to point to the website hosting server via a nameserver. 

If you purchase your domain and hosting from us, this will be automatically set-up.
