The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the 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) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, so you can view the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, will allow you to deal with the name servers of every single domain registered through us with only a few mouse clicks, so even when you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you'll not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We also provide you with the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll 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 forward the domain to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
