The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you type in 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 provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use a Linux cloud website hosting from our us and you add a new domain name within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you'll be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for many domain addresses simultaneously with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain name even if it's the first one you have ever registered. It requires simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain which is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain and to verify if they are the ones that are necessary 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 permit you to control any domain effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This option is very useful when you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
