The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Website Hosting
If you use a website hosting service from our us and you register a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you're going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly via 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 a group of domains simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain name even if it's 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 point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domains within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
