The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain 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 a site, for example, and you type the URL, the web 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, so you can look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
If you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to point to a different provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for each and every domain name registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domains in the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
