What are name servers?

In order to use a domain name, you need a name server. A name server is a computer connected to the internet that "translates" each domain name into an IP address and vice versa.

If you don’t have a name server of your own, you can use the Hostbasket name servers free of charge for your Hostbasket domain name.
