The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you input 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 company where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of numerous domains at a time in case that you intend to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.
