The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you enter 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 company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the right 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
In case you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain names simultaneously, which could save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also allow you to create private name servers for every single domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for each and every domain address that's registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks using the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain and to verify if they're the ones that are required 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 allow you to control any domain address effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can even 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 feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
