The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting from our us and you add a new domain name within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly using the Hepsia website hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain names simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain address even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It requires just a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every company that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

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