The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc 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 would like to open a site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain address 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 Web Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our web hosting packages, allows you to control the name servers of every single domain registered through us with simply a couple of clicks, so even though you may haven't had a hosting plan or a domain address before, you simply won't encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains together. We offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain name 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. Unlike other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
