Learn what NS records are and why they are vital for virtually any domain name.
The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name 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 a site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name within a website hosting
account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you would like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Additionally we allow you to create private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server
account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
