The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP 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 forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any Internet 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 an Internet 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 hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, so you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain name has two 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

When you use a Linux shared website hosting package from our company and you add a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you'll be able to handle its NS records with ease through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domain names at once with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain even if it is the first you've ever registered. It takes only a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of each domain registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can control everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones required to point that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
