The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered inside a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of multiple domain names at the same time if you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

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 name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain addresses in the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
