The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for example, and you enter 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 hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you use a website hosting from our company and you add a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you are going to be able to control its NS records with ease through the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for several domain names simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to control your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any company that you would like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain address to be forwarded to the account which you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in 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.
