The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can view the content from the correct location. Normally a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of many domain names at once if you would like to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still direct to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of any domain registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find all of your domain names is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses currently and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
