The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to another provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered using our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will enable you to handle your domains without difficulty even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain name up to now. Changing the NS records for each domain registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to point that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and requires just a couple of mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as a part of the free DNS control services which 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 name you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
