The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails 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 web hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain has 2 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

When you use a Linux website hosting from our us and you register a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you will be able to manage its NS records with ease through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for several domain names 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 easy to handle your domain name even if it's the first you have ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain name that's registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks from the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to view the current NS records for a given domain address and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain 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 control any domain address with ease even if you haven't 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 only for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you would like to host within the same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
