The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our shared web hosting products, will permit you to manage the name servers of any domain name registered through us with simply a few clicks, so even when you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you'll not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain names simultaneously. In addition we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers and for every domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. Unlike other companies, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain address within 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 difficulties even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domains within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
