The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain address 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 Cloud Website Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our cloud website hosting plans, allows you to control the name servers of every domain registered through our company with just a couple of clicks, so even when you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain before, you simply won't encounter any troubles. 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 name or even a number of domain addresses together. We also give you the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain name 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 forward the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to point the domain name to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
