The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the web 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of several domains simultaneously if you intend to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.
