The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can view the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting plans, will permit you to control the name servers of every single domain address registered through us with just a couple of clicks, so even if you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We also provide you with the chance to create child name servers and for each domain registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain name to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
