The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered inside a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of multiple domain addresses at the same time whenever you intend to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.
