The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web 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 hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered in a shared hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of several domain addresses at the same time if you want to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
