The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain 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 example, and you insert the URL, the web 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 retrieved, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain name has a couple of 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

If you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain addresses at once, which can save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to redirect to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for every domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
