The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you type the URL, the 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 website is retrieved, so you can see the content from the right location. Normally a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In the event you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain addresses you want to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain addresses in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
