The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the proper location. Usually a domain 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 Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name within a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers with ease. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domains at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses you want to forward to another service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for any domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain addresses within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
