The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you type the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed 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 right location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of many domain names at a time if you need to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain addresses in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account which you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
