The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for instance, and you enter 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 site is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, included with with our cloud website hosting packages, will allow you to deal with the name servers of any domain name registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses all at once. Additionally we offer you the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to forward the domain name to their system. Unlike other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
