The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you type the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you would like to redirect to another provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Additionally we enable you to set up private name servers for each domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
