The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed 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 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 website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of numerous domain names simultaneously in case that you want to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, as an example, it will 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, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain that's registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain name and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain address easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host inside the same account. This option is very handy if you have clients of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
