The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails 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 web hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the proper location. Ordinarily 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 just visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting from our us and you register a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to handle its NS records with ease through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a number of domain names at the same time with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain address even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires only a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every company that you want the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain name that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a specific domain address and to determine if they are the ones that are needed 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 enable you to control any domain address effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you would like to host in the very same account. This feature is very handy if you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
