The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the 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), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected 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 right location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers easily. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at a time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to point to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for each domain registered with our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within 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 not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses in the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain to be directed to the account that you have 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 just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
