The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you type in the URL, the web 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 hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can view the content from the right location. Normally 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 Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain names at a time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we enable you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered through our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
