The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you type in 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 site is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of several domains simultaneously in case that you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account too, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
