The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of multiple domain names at once if you want to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.
