Know Your Domain’s Name Server Better With Reverse NS API

Know Your Domain’s Name Server Better With Reverse NS API

Name Servers are a fundamental part of the Domain Name System (DNS). They define your domain’s current DNS provider and are key to ensuring that your website is visible on the web. They are owned by web hosts and are specifically used to manage the domain names associated with their web hosting customers. Most hosting companies will have thousands of domains pointed to the same name servers.

While bundling domains on a single server works great for hosting companies, it may not always be great for domain owners. The phrase ‘the more the merrier’ can backfire if there is a malicious entity hosted on the same server as you because if you are in a bad neighborhood, it is bound to affect you too. It, therefore, is important for domains to make sure that they are in a safe and secure surrounding. Web hosts do try and keep bad actors at bay, but with each passing day, these malevolent entities do keep finding new ways to circumvent their discovery.

Most domain owners know the Name Servers their domains are hosted upon. In case you are not sure, you can quite easily find your NS record with DNS Lookup API from WhoisXmlApi.
