While Nameservers act like signposts on the internet that tell ISP’s where your domain name is hosted. Glue records tell ISP’s where to find the nameservers in the first place. Although you can have many websites using the same nameservers, each nameserver can only have one glue record.

You should only create glue records if you are creating your own nameservers for a domain name registered with Fasthosts, but hosted on your own servers.
