The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed 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 input the URL, the 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 website is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Usually a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of many domain names simultaneously if you want to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for each and every domain name which is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a specific domain address and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address 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 control any domain effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host within the exact same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
