The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for example, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you use a Linux shared service from our company and you include a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to handle its NS records with ease through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domain names simultaneously with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to manage your domain even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
