The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded 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 in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of many domain names at the same time if you want to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
