The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered in a hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of many domains at the same time when you intend to point them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for instance, it will 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 name to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.
