The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
If you use a Linux cloud package from our company and you register a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you'll be able to handle its NS records effortlessly using the Hepsia web hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domains at a time with several clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain address even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domains within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
