The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol 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 provider and for any Internet domain 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 website, for example, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can view the content from the correct location. Normally a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain addresses at once, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Furthermore we permit you to create private name servers for each domain address registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have never had a domain address 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 packages. If you have several domain addresses in the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be directed 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, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
