The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you type 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 hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
If you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains at a time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domains that you'd like to point to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for each domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
