The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (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 to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you enter the URL, the Internet 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

If you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of 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 just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at a time, which will save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We enable you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create 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 want to point to our cloud platform.
