The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you type the URL, the Internet 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you use a website hosting from our company and you include a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you'll be able to handle its NS records easily using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, 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 several domain addresses at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address 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 IPs of each company that you would like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain names within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
