The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Commonly a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of many domain addresses at once if you intend to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.
