The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the 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 company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can see the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered within a hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of several domains at once if you intend to point them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you would like to set up 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 in case you have a company web site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.
