The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the proper location. Usually a domain name has 2 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

If you register a domain name inside a web hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses you want to redirect to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. In addition we enable you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered with our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domains within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
