The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert 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 hosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to forward to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for any domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for each and every domain that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a specific domain address and to check if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be pointed 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 name with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain name 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 in lieu of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
