The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed 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 in the URL, the web 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 provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, allows you to take care of the name servers of every domain address registered through us with simply a couple of clicks, so even when you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain names simultaneously. We give you the opportunity to create child name servers and for each domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to forward the domain to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
