The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage 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 taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers easily. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains at the same time, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names you want to redirect to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for each and every domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domains in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
