The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the site (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), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet 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 site is retrieved, so you can view the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a shared hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of multiple domain names at the same time if you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for any domain address that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks via the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to check if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host in the exact same account. This feature is very useful when you have clients of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
