The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for example, and you type 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 web site is obtained, so that you can see the content from the right location. Usually a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you use a shared web hosting plan from our company and you register a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you are going to be able to manage its NS records with ease via the Hepsia web hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for several domain addresses at once with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that 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 one you've ever registered. It takes simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you want the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for any domain address that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to check if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain address with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they're set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host in the exact same account. This option is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
