The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP 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), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any 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 want to open a site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Normally a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
If you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which will save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for each domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect 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 Servers
When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
