The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to 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 address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so you can see the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domains at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We enable you to create private name servers for each and every domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
