The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address 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 an Internet site, for example, and you type the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

When you use a shared hosting package from our company and you add a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you're going to be able to handle its NS records with ease through the Hepsia website hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domain addresses simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain address even if it's the first one you have ever registered. It takes simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each provider that you'd like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to manage the NS records of any domain address registered within it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to control everything relevant to your web presence, offers 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 haven't had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses currently and if they're the ones required to point that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly when it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
