The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to 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 sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared website hosting plans, will permit you to control the name servers of each domain name registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We also provide you with the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
