The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should 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 address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, so you can see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of many domains simultaneously if you intend to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for instance, 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 name to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.
