The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, 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 sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which could save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to another provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for each domain address registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
