What are Custom Name Servers?

Custom name servers, or vanity names, can be used to customize how your registered domain name information is displayed.

They are primarily seen in a "Whois" lookup on your domain name.

For example, the nameservers for your domain are normally listed as such: nsx.hosting24.com nsx.hosting24.com

With custom name servers, you might have your information like this: ns1.yourdomain.com ns2.yourdomain.com
