The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you type the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the proper 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 Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting from our us and you include a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you will be able to handle its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domain names at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to control your domain address even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It requires merely a click to see what name servers a domain name 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 only a couple of clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will permit you to handle your domain names with ease even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain address before. Changing the NS records for each and every domain registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and requires as little as a few clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain addresses as part of the free DNS administration services we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain name which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
