    Someday ago I got one mail from Hosting Service provide stating that
    "We have received a request that the name servers be changed for the following domain name(s)
    :www. mydomain. com (original domain name changed)”
    I did not request anything from them; I can open my hosting account and can make necessary changes. My domain is 3 months old.
    Is someone trying to still my domain or anything else? What should I do? Can anyone explain me what is going on?

    Nameservers are like the Post Office of the internet. They direct traffic to your proper IP Address by storing up-to-date routing information and informing requests that look for you where to go. There are hundreds of thousands of nameservers on the internet. People know which NS to query based on your defined NS location with your domain registrar.

    If you change your Nameserver, that is the equivalent of deciding to use UPS or FedEx instead of the USPS to deliver all your mail. No one can steal your domain name by changing your nameserver. What CAN happen is that your traffic won't find your website, though.

    You'll have to update your Registrar (the company who maintains records of your domain name ownership) to direct DNS requests to the new Nameserver. Better yet, you should probably just use your Registrar's built-in Nameserver to point traffic directly to your site's IP address. If you use GoDaddy, you can do this with Total DNS.
