Hello Friends, In this blog post I will let you know about the name server records of the domain. And I will tell you all the necessary stuff related to the domain nameserver records update.

Why do we need to update the nameserver records(DNS Records)?

Usually when you purchase your domain and hosting from the same provider then you don’t need to update your nameserver records(DNS records). This is done automatically by the system as they have control of both domains and hosting.

But when you purchase your domain from the third party and hosting from a different hosting provider then, in this situation you need to update the DNS records for the nameserver. If you don’t do this then you will not be able to access your website with your domain.

You can also transfer your domain, but your hosting may charge an amount for this transfer of domain and hosting at their end. So the transfer is not a good option until it is necessary.
