The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP 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 web hosting provider and for any domain address 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 a site, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, so you can see the content from the right location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domains simultaneously whenever you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.
