The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you type the URL, the web 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 hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Normally a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

When you use a shared website hosting from our us and you add a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you are going to be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domain addresses at once with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to manage your domain address even if it is the first you've ever registered. It requires simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, that will permit you to manage your domains with ease even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain name in the past. Changing the NS records for any domain name registered through 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 couple of mouse clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under any of your domain addresses as part of the free DNS control services that 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 any domain address you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
