The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to point to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. In addition we permit you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domains within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
