The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you type the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can view the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of multiple domains simultaneously whenever you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, for instance, 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 to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
