The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any 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 wish to open a site, for instance, and you insert 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 website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain address 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

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered inside a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of numerous domain names at the same time if you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account too, not just the one they're 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 troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain addresses inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
