The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name 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 Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered inside a hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of numerous domain addresses at once when you need to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, 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 forwarding any other domain address to the same account as well, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will enable you to manage your domains with ease even if you haven't used a hosting account or a domain name before. Changing the NS records for each and every domain address registered using our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are correct or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and takes as little as a few clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as an element of the free DNS control services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain name you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, employing this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
