The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain address 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 Shared Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain names at a time when you need to point them all to the same hosting company. The very same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you 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 directing any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every domain that's registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to verify if they're the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to handle any domain name easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host within the exact same account. This option is very beneficial if you have clients of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is free of charge.
