The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered within a web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of many domains simultaneously when you want to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domains in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
