The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web 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), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for example, and you enter 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 web site is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of several domains at a time if you want to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain name to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain name that's registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks from the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a particular domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you would like to host within the very same account. This feature is very handy when you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
