A nameserver is a specialized server on the Internet that handles queries or questions from your local computer, about the location of a domain name's various services.
A great simple way to think about nameservers is using a phone book analogy. If you were trying to call NameHero.com you might have remembered our phone number, but more than likely you'd want to look it up before just guessing at numbers.
This same story is also true for the Internet and domain names. As an example you're reading this article right now on our NameHero.com domain name.
Here at NameHero.com, we allow customers that registered domain names through us to register their own nameservers free of charge.
In the steps below, we’ll show you how to register nameservers.
1) Login to the NameHero Platform.
2) Click the Domains button.
3) Click beside the domain that you wish to register the nameservers for.
In this example, we're going to select YourSupportHero.com.
4) On the domain management page, click Private Nameservers on your left.
5) On the next page, fill out the fields with the values you desire. You can obtain the correct IP addresses for your account in your client area under My Cloud > My Services then click on appropriate plan. Click Save Changes once complete.
Hero tip: You can also use this page to manage NameServers that you've already registered.
6) Once your Nameservers are registered and assigned to a domain, you will need to verify they are working properly by checking the domain with our DNS Tool.
