There are three different components when operating a website online.

3. Delegate your domain

You don’t need to have your domain name and web hosting with the same company. However, it does help to keep both of these with the same provider for possible future troubleshooting and simplicity of use. It may also be more cost effective.

When you own a domain name. You have the option to point your domain to any web hosting provider you wish. In order to point your domain name for use with a web hosting provider you must direct it to that hosting company. This is called “delegating” your domain.

Each hosting company operates a set of two or more special servers called name servers. Otherwise known as (NS)

When you find yourself in the situation where you need to use a different web hosting provider other than the hosting your domain registration company offers. You will need to delegate your domain to the new hosting companies name servers.
It’s common for hosting companies to have more than two name servers. They do this because it offers much greater redundancy and fail over. But generally you won’t need to use any more than two different name server addresses or IP addresses.

When you want to delegate your domain to a certain hosting provider. The first step is to check the web hosts website in order to attain the two NS addresses.
Often these address will either be a name. Or alternatively a set of two IP addresses. However it is more common to see a NS name.
The NS names generally look like something very similar to the following.
