The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for example, and you enter the URL, the web 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Ordinarily 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 Shared Web Hosting
When you use a shared web hosting service from our company and you register a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to handle its NS records with ease using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a number of domains simultaneously with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain address even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It requires only a click to see what name servers a domain 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 clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which can 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 forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
