The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of numerous domain names at the same time when you would like to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for instance, 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 address to the same account as well, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for each domain address that's registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks using the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may 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're set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host within the same account. This feature is very handy when you have clients of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is totally free.
