The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain address (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 domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for example, and you type 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 provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the correct location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you use a Linux cloud hosting from our us and you include a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you will be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for many domain names at once with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to handle your domain name even if it's the first you've ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

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 difficulties even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain names in the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
