How to find DNS nameserver from whm panel
In this page, we will discuss how to find nameserver from the WHM panel. Before that let us understand what is Nameserver.
A nameserver is a component of DNS(domain name system) which allows the website to be browsed by its domain name instead of its IP address. When we type the domain name in the browser the nameserver will translate the domain into its corresponding IP address
For example, when you type the Domain name “Abxy.com” in the browser, there will be a request sent to domain’s Nameserver and will return the IP address of the domain, this IP address is used by the browser to fetch the website. Every website will have at least two nameservers, the general format of the nameserver will be ns1.nameofserver.in and ns2.nameofserver.in where nameofserver will be the name of the server. And generally, ns1.nameofserver.in (the first nameserver ) will be the primary server and ns2.nameofserver.in (the second nameserver) will be the backup server when the first nameserver is not responding. The nameservers are used to translate the domain name into IP address as IP address are hard for us to remember.
Step to find nameserver details in your WHM panel:
Step 1: Log in to the server using the WHM username and password through
