The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider 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 wish to open a site, for example, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name 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 Shared Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of numerous domain addresses at the same time if you intend to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to control the NS records of any domain registered in it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses presently and if they're the ones required to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
