The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for example, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting plan from our us and you register a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you will be able to manage its NS records with ease via the Hepsia website hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a number of domains at once with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain name even if it's the first you have ever registered. It requires just 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 couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain that is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks via the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to determine if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain address effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you would like to host inside the same account. This option is very handy if you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is free of charge.
