The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for example, and you type the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the right location. Normally a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

When you use a web hosting plan from our company and you add a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you are going to be able to handle its NS records effortlessly through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, 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 several domain names at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain even if it is the first you have ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain name 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 one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain inside 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 required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domains within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
