The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, 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 redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address 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 Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting from our us and you add a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you will be able to manage its NS records easily via the Hepsia web 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 at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to handle your domain even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you would like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domains within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
