The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (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 forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use a cloud website hosting service from our us and you register a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for many domain names simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to control your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It requires simply a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every company that you would like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have a number of domain addresses within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
