The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol 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), directing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can see the content from the right location. Usually a domain name 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 Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domains at once, which could save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domains that you would like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We also allow you to create private name servers for any domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
