The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of numerous domain addresses at once whenever you intend to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still direct to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domains in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain address to be directed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
