The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names at once, which can save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains that you would like to point to another service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to create private name servers for any domain address registered with our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of each domain registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all of your domains is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses presently and if they're the ones needed to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
