The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Normally a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered in a shared website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of many domains simultaneously if you intend to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of each domain registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses currently and if they're the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added 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 site, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
