The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for example, and you type the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, 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 distinction between the two is just visual.

It requires just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own.

The name servers for every domain address that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks from the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain name and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain name effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before.
