If you have a domain but you did not buy it from Resell.biz, you will need to update your nameservers with Resell.biz before hosting a website. Luckily, this is a very simple process and should only take a few minutes. It is worth taking a moment to understand exactly what nameservers are, and why they are crucial to your web hosting experience. So, let’s get started…
What are nameservers?
Nameservers are specialized servers that host domain name queries. For example, if you request a domain name by typing it into the URL bar, the request is sent to that server with a response whether to connect or not.
An oversimplified example of the nameserver process is to imagine that to reach Resell.biz you pick up the phone and dial our number. However, the phone number is replaced with a domain name located on a server that chooses to either connect or refuse your call.
However, before you can call up a domain, you have to be sure that the phone number matches the location where your domain will be held. This process is completed by setting the correct nameservers.
