The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you type the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Usually a domain name 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 Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of multiple domain addresses at the same time in case that you need to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, as an 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 directing any other domain to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domains in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be directed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
