The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name 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 an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, so you can look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a shared website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of many domain names at the same time when you want to forward them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, as an example, it'll 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 to the same account as well, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties 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 packages. If you have several domain names inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account which you have on our advanced cloud 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 name, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
