The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you input the URL, the 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 provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain address 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

Managing the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of several domains at once if you intend to direct them all to the same hosting company. Exactly the same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to 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 name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to control the NS records of each domain name registered in it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find your domain names is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain name that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
