The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain address 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 example, and you type in 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 company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the correct location. Commonly 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 Cloud Website Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting plans, allows you to handle the name servers of any domain registered through our company with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you simply won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll permit you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously. Additionally we give you the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to point the domain name to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to control the NS records of each domain name registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a several clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses currently and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain name that you would like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
