The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider 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 want to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the 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 company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting from our us and you include a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a group of domain names at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to control your domain address even if it's the first you've ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you would like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of any domain address registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a web 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 be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses right now and if they're the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
