The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of multiple domains at the same time whenever you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of any domain name registered within it effortlessly.

The section where you will find all of your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses currently and if they're the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free.
