The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc 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 should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, 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 sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at a time, which can save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names that you would like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter several 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 address registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
