The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet 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 hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company and you add a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you're going to be able to manage its NS records with ease through the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for several domains at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain address even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you'd like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address 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 problems even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domains within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
