The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP 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), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the web 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 a website, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name inside a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers easily. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at a time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to direct to another provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We allow you to create private name servers for any domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

You'll also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as a part of the free DNS management services we offer you with each and every plan and have and The latter can be used for each and every domain address you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature will give you a lot more credibility as a business.
