The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain address 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 a website, for instance, and you type in 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 site is obtained, allowing you to see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name 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 case you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at a time, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains you want to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We permit you to set up private name servers for each domain name registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of each domain address registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything relevant to your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domain names is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few mouse clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses currently and if they're the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, especially when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
