The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain 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 type the URL, the Internet 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 web site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a shared website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers easily. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at once, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names you want to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We also allow you to set up private name servers for every single Internet domain registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered in it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can control everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain name and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few mouse clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses presently and if they're the ones needed to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
