The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with 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 company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you type the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the proper location. Normally a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In case you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names at once, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses you want to redirect to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we permit you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domain addresses inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
