The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name 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 an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our shared hosting products, will enable you to control the name servers of each domain registered through us with simply a few mouse clicks, so even if you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains all at once. We also provide you with the opportunity to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you will 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 address to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
