The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered inside a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of many domain names at a time whenever you intend to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also permit 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 point to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, as an example, it's going to 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 as well, not only the one they're created for.
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're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain names in the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
