The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for example, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to forward to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we allow you to create private name servers for each domain address registered with our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every single domain which is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain name and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the very same account. This option is very useful if you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
