The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed 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 enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, so that 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 difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains at the same time, which could save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses you want to direct to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We also allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain address registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to control the NS records of every domain registered in it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool for you to control everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a several clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses presently and if they are the ones required to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain that you would like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
