The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (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), directing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you type 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Normally a domain address 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 Cloud Web Hosting
When you use a Linux cloud web hosting
from our company and you add a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you're going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly using the Hepsia website hosting CP, offered 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 addresses simultaneously 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 will make it easy to control your domain address even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It requires merely a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each company that you want the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of each domain address registered within it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to control everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few clicks. You're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses currently and if they are the ones required to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
