The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain address 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 a website, for instance, and you input the URL, the 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 provider where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting packages, will enable you to manage the name servers of every single domain address registered through our company with simply a few mouse clicks, so even when you haven't had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you'll not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it'll permit you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses together. Additionally we provide you with the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to point the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain name to their system. Unlike other companies, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
