The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can view the content from the proper location. Commonly 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 Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers easily. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We permit you to set up private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
