The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, 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 pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Usually 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 Shared Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered within a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of multiple domain addresses at the same time when you want to forward them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet domain 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 have a company site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
