The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for example, and you type in the URL, the 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Normally 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 Shared Hosting

If you use a shared hosting service from our company and you register a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to manage its NS records with ease via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domain addresses simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to manage your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain address which is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks through the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a given domain and to determine if they are the ones that are needed for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain address with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would 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 under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host in the exact same account. This feature is very useful when you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
