The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for example, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domains at a time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domains that you would like to point to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Additionally we enable you to set up private name servers for each and every domain address registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of every domain address registered in it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses right now and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
