We provide our customers with a full Domain Name System (DNS) including four free name servers, which our customers can use for all their domain names. Name servers store important technical information in the zone files and play therefore an essential role in the functioning of online services.
Their main task is to function as address books. In other words, name servers store the information where (on which server and IP address) a website is hosted and link the domain names to the IP addresses of their respective server. This is done because it’s easier for humans to read and remember a domain name than it is to read and remember an IP address.
For example, when a user types moreweb.nz” into their browser, our name servers know that the content of our website is located at IP address “220.127.116.11” and forwards the user to it. Instead of remembering this IP address, the user only has to remember the domain name moreweb.nz. Name servers contain also the Mail Exchange (MX) records, which tell the mail server the location of the email recipient, needed for personalised email addresses.
