The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any Internet 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 website, for example, and you type 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the correct location. Usually a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you use a cloud hosting service from our company and you register a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly through the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for several domain names simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain address even if it's the first you have ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you want the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain that's registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a given domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain address easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
