The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain address 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 enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Usually a domain 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 Cloud Website Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to a different service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We permit you to create private name servers for every single domain address registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domains in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
