The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered within a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of multiple domain names at once when you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, 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 forwarding any other domain name to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
