What are Nameservers and why do I need them?

Nameservers link domain names to their corresponding IP addresses.

When you type in a domain name in order to access a website, your browser queries a Nameserver to locate the IP addresses where it can retrieve the website.

In this way we can surf the internet using easy to remember domain names such as Fabulous.com, rather that difficult to remember IP addresses.

In order for your domain to resolve to a website, it must have Nameservers assigned to it. A domain must have 2 different Nameserver addresses (for example the Fabulous Nameservers are ns1.fabulous.com and ns2.fabulous.com) which correspond to 2 different IP addresses.

You can create Nameservers from IP addresses in your Fabulous account.
