The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a shared hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of numerous domains simultaneously in case that you would like to forward them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain name 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 needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
