The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web 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 company where the A record of the site is obtained, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name 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 Shared Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of several domain addresses simultaneously when you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
