The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP 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) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the proper location. Normally a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting plan from our us and you include a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you are going to be able to control its NS records effortlessly through the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a group of domain addresses at a time with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to handle your domain name even if it is the first you've ever registered. It takes simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain 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 have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses in the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
