The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you insert the URL, the web 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at once, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names you want to redirect to another provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also permit you to create private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect 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 names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
