The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the Internet 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 web site is retrieved, so you can view the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of many domain names simultaneously when you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have a number of domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
