The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the right 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 only visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers easily. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we permit you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
