How to change Domain Nameserver?

A nameserver is a server that translates domain names into IP addresses. When you enter a domain name into your browser’s search bar  the domain name is sent to the name server, which converts it to an IP address so the browser can find it. Your web browser connects to the server using the IP address after locating the domain name in the name server and loads the requested website.
