The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed 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 and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a shared website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we enable you to set up private name servers for every single domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, that will allow you to handle your domain names effortlessly even when you haven't used a web hosting account or a domain address previously. Changing the NS records for each domain registered using our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to direct that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires as little as a few clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain addresses as part of the free DNS administration services which we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain address that you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature is going to give you a lot more credibility as a business.
