The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address 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 a website, for example, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain 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 Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for every domain address registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain which is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few clicks via the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a given domain and to verify if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain address with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host within the exact same account. This feature is very useful if you have customers of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
