The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of multiple domain names at once if you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.
