The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Ordinarily 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 just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at once, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to forward to a different provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We also enable you to set up private name servers for each and every domain address registered with our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
