The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Commonly 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 Cloud Hosting
In case you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names simultaneously, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names you want to redirect to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we allow you to create private name servers for every domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for each and every domain which is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks via the sophisticated, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to verify if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain address easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host in the very same account. This feature is very beneficial if 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 100 % free.
