The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, 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 redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Normally a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses at once, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to point to another service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. In addition we permit you to set up private name servers for every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
