The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken 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 has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain address 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 Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name 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 haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domains within the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
