The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you input the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses simultaneously, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you would like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we allow you to create private name servers for every single Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domain names inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
