The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want 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 redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

When you use a Linux shared web hosting plan from our us and you add a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to handle its NS records with ease using the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for several domains simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to manage your domain even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any company that you want the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of any domain address registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can control everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domain names is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain name that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
