The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web 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), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Usually a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domain addresses simultaneously in case that you intend to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.
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 control the NS records of each domain registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to control everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find all your domain names is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses right now and if they're the ones needed to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the 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, particularly when it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
