|Q. What does Default Nameservers mean?|
A. When you manage your domain name via our domain name management system, you have the option of setting your DNS Servers (aka Name Servers) to either "Default Nameservers" or "Custom Nameservers"
Which one should you choose?
Default Nameservers are the nameservers people use if they ONLY register a domain name, without purchasing web hosting services. The Default Nameservers allow the user to set up web redirects, e-mail forwards, and even DNS records (A, CNAME, MX, etc.).
If a customer purchases web hosting (from QTH.com, or anyone else) then they need to choose Custom Nameservers and then enter in the nameservers to the DNS Servers the web hosting provider dictates. When a customer purchases web hosting service from QTH.com, instructions will be sent that will contain the proper DNS servers to use.
