The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, 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 pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the right location. Normally 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 only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domains at a time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a lot of domain names you want to point to another provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for every single domain address registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
