The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
If you use a cloud web hosting package
from our us and you include a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to control its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain names at once with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to control your domain address even if it's the first one you have ever registered. It takes only a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you want the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for each domain address that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks from the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server
plans. It is just as easy to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain name with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host within the exact same account. This option is very useful if you have customers of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
