The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can view the content from the right 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 Website Hosting

Managing 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 moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domain names simultaneously in case that you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will help you control your domain names effortlessly even if you haven't used a hosting account or a domain name in the past. Changing the NS records for each domain registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to forward that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and takes only a couple of clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS management services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain address you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature will give you more credibility as a business.
