The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (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 company and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, 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 provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

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

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for each domain address that's registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans.
