The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Website Hosting
The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our website hosting packages, will permit you to manage the name servers of any domain address registered through our company with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you have not had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you'll not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously. We offer you the chance to create child name servers and for each and every domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
