The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle 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), pointing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any 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 want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the proper location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain registered inside a shared website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of several domains at once when you intend to point them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they are created for.
