The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Usually a domain 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 Cloud Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of several domain addresses at the same time when you would like to forward them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case 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 name to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain in 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 issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain addresses within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced 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 only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
