The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails 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 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 would like 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 address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Web Hosting
If you use a Linux web hosting from our us and you register a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to handle its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a number of domain addresses at once with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you want the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domains in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you 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 correct ones or not for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
