The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be directed 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 Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses at a time, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses you want to redirect to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to set up private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not 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 when you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will allow you to manage your domains with ease even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain in the past. Changing the NS records for each and every domain registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and takes as little as a few clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as a part of the free DNS control services we provide 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 that you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature is going to give you far more credibility as a business.
