The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can view the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain names simultaneously if you intend to direct them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they are 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 provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
