The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are extracted 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 should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at once, which can save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses you want to forward to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Additionally we permit you to create private name servers for any domain name registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain which is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to verify if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
