The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (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 forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at a time, which can save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains that you'd like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We enable you to create private name servers for any domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of every domain registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything associated with your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses right now and if they are the ones needed to point that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain name that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
