The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails 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 web hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for example, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

If you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers easily. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain addresses at the same time, which can save you considerable time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains that you'd like to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We also permit you to create private name servers for any Internet domain registered with our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to control the NS records of every domain registered in it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can control everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses at the moment and if they are the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
