Setting Nameservers for Your Domains

What are Nameservers?

Nameservers tell all computers looking for your domain name where your website, email and other services are located. They turn a human readable domain name like www.rolet.com into a computer readable IP Address. They’re pretty important.

When moving your web hosting services to Rolet Hosting, we’ll give you the option to point your domain name to our Nameservers. This gives you the power to control where your website, email and other applications are hosted through the DNS management tool in your Rolet Client Interface.
