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 Shared Hosting
If you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain addresses at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to point to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for any domain name registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
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.
