The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web 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 provider where the A record of the site is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered inside a hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of several domain addresses simultaneously if you intend to point them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, which will allow you to manage your domain addresses effortlessly even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain address in the past. Changing the NS records for each and every domain registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to direct that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and takes as little as a few clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as part of the free DNS control services that we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain which you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their web sites, employing this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
