Am I right boys?

Yes thats right. When a user types in a web address, that address needs to point somewhere. By typing in a nameserver, you are 'telling' the DNS that your domain has to point to a specific server or hosting company. The hosting company then decides to deal with the request and route it to the account that they have under that domain name. So, for instance, this allows multiple accounts on a single, shared-hosting server.

NS1, NS2...NS* are just back ups or otherwise load balancers, as far as I am aware.

since we're all jumping into the fray, here's my two bits.

the nameserver maps your domain name onto the web host's IP.

hence if u ping your domain name, say domainsocial.com, you'll see it's IP which is 205.234.110.2.

if you key those numbers into yr browser, you should be able to see DS too.
but in this case, it's shared hosting, so you bang into the face of the webhost.

for sites with static IPs, you can pretty much access it like you'd do with a domain name proper.

just that a domain name is prettier than the IP numbers.

A name server is a specialized server on the Internet which is handling the queries from our computer and tells us about the location name of domain name server.
