The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails 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 provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered within a website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain address, but even of many domain names simultaneously whenever you intend to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for instance, it will 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 name to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
