The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails 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 web hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you input the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded 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 right location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
When you use a Linux shared web hosting package from our us and you register a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you are going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for many domain addresses at once with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain address even if it is the first you've ever registered. It takes only a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you'll 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 IP addresses of each provider that you would like the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domain names within the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
