The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should 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 provider where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses simultaneously whenever you would like to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every domain address which is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to determine if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain address with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would 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're created, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host in the same account. This option is very useful when you have customers of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
