The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained 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 needs 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

If you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers easily. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domains that you would like to direct to a different provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for each and every domain registered via 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 each time 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 Servers

If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domains within the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
