The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails 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 forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for instance, and you enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of several domain names at the same time in case that you would like to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer procedure is not going to 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 registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will help you manage your domains without difficulty even when you have not used a web hosting account or a domain in the past. Changing the NS records for each and every domain address registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and requires only a few clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domains as an element of the free DNS control services which we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain address that you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you far more credibility as a business.
