The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet 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 redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can see the content from the proper location. Normally a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain addresses at the same time, which will save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to a different service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We also enable you to create private name servers for any domain name registered through our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain which is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain and to determine if they're the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain name easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host inside the exact same account. This option is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
