The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you enter 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. 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 are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at a time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names that you would like to forward to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Additionally we permit you to create private name servers for each domain registered through our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain name that's registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain address and to determine if they are the ones that are required for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain name easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the very same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
