That request goes to your domain registrar and there the nameservers of that domain are checked and then from the nameservers it shows that where your site’s DNS records are stored, that is, Nameservers are called servers which are called your DNS records Keep the store

Whenever you host your website on a server, your site has DNS records on that server and with the help of those DNS records, Internet users can access your site’s webpages and you can access the FTP account, webmail account.
