The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet 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 retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Commonly a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you use a Linux website hosting package from our company and you register a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you will be able to control its NS records effortlessly through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domains at once with several clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain even if it is the first you've ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every company that you would like the new NS records to point to.
