The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for 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 address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider 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 want to open a site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at once, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names that you would like to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We also permit you to set up private name servers for any domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain that's registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks through the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a given domain address and to determine if they are the ones that are required for the domain name 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 address with ease even if you haven't 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 just for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host within the exact same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
