The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

When you use a Linux shared hosting package from our company and you register a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you'll be able to manage its NS records with ease via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, offered 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 many domains at once with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain name even if it's the first one you have ever registered. It takes only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only 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 IP addresses of each and every provider that you want the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address 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 needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain names inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
