The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (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 should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Normally a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a shared web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of multiple domains simultaneously when you intend to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
