The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the correct location. Normally 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 Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at once, which will save you time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names you want to point to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. In addition we allow you to create private name servers for every domain address registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
