The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain name (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 domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, allowing you to see the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you use a website hosting from our company and you include a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you will be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for several domain names at once with several clicks. This is done using 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 even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account which you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
