The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name 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 instance, and you type the URL, the 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 company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
If you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers effortlessly. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses at the same time, which could save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. In addition we allow you to create private name servers for each domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, that will permit you to handle your domain addresses with ease even when you haven't used a hosting account or a domain previously. Changing the NS records for each domain name registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to direct that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires only a few clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as part of the free DNS administration services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain which you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature is going to give you far more credibility as a business.
