The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the 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 wish to open an Internet site, for example, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can view the content from the correct location. Normally a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at the same time, which will save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain names that you would like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain address registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domain names inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
