The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails 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 website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of many domain addresses simultaneously if you need to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain names inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
