Name servers point a domain name to an IP address. This allows a user to simply type in ‘Uniregistry.com’ and get directed to a server at 172.16.27.38. The internet would be a tough place to navigate if we had to remember IP addresses. That’s what name servers are for, they translate host names into numbers to make the internet easier for us to navigate. Name servers are usually added in pairs, in case one fails.
Uniregistry offers free name servers for your domains, or you may set custom name servers if you wish.
