The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you type the URL, the 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

When you use a Linux shared hosting from our us and you register a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you'll be able to manage its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a group of domain names simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It requires just a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you are going to 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 IPs of each company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain name 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 required without any problems even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
