The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, 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 provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of many domains at a time in case that you want to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain which is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks via the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a particular domain name and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain address with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host within the same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
