The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of many domain names at a time whenever you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain name 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 required without any problems even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain names in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the proper ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
