In order for people to find your website, you will need to configure DNS and set nameservers. You can either use our nameservers, or you can use third-party name servers. Either way, you would need to configure them so your domain works with your Greenix360 web hosting account.
DNS is an acronym for Domain Name Server, and is the system used to translate word-based addresses of systems (like 'www.example.com') to the numerical IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer or system that should be located at that address. All computers and systems on the Internet use addresses that look similar to: 220.127.116.11.
