How to set name servers for your domain name?  How to set name servers for your domain name?

A name server is a server which controls the DNS for a domain. It handles queries or questions from your local computer, about the location of a domain name's various services. Domain Name Servers are the Internet's equivalent of a phone book.

Which name servers you need to use depends on where it's registered and where your website is hosted. All domain registrars should provide you with the ability to change at least two name server entries on your domain name. In order to avail our free dynamic DNS services, you need to list the following Dynu name servers:

NS1.DYNU.COM
NS2.DYNU.COM
NS3.DYNU.COM
NS4.DYNU.COM
NS5.DYNU.COM

'Set Default Name Servers' will set Dynu name servers for your domain name. You need to have at least one primary name server and one secondary name server. The primary name server cannot be removed, so if you need to change the primary name server, you can first add the new primary name server and make it primary.
