The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you insert 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 company where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain names simultaneously, which can save you time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains that you would like to redirect to a different service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We also allow you to create private name servers for every single domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address 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 Servers

When you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
