The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company 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 want to open a website, for instance, and you insert 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the proper location. Normally a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of numerous domain names at the same time whenever you want to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for 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 forwarding any other domain to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domains within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
