Name servers are the servers where the content and configuration records for your domain are stored. Assigning custom name servers means you do not want to use Uniregistry's name servers. Generally, you would do this when you want to point your domain to your hosting account for your website and/or when you’ve set up your own name servers. Your hosting company for your website will tell you which name servers to use.
