The resolving process begins when a visitor goes to your website. The visitor enters your domain name in the Internet browser.The browser then searches the nameservers about the location of the server to find out just where your website is located.

One, you are opening communication between you and your customer or viewer and making it easy for them to contact you; and two, you are repeating the name of your website, which in a way, is a form of advertising. To get the most from the mailboxes associated with your web hosting account, you will need to understand a little about how they work.
