What are NS records? Why are they crucial for your website?
The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company 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 website, for instance, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Normally a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.
