The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like 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 and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Hosting

When you use a Linux hosting from our company and you register a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to handle its NS records with ease using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domain addresses simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain address even if it's the first you have ever registered. It requires merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each company that you want the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to manage the NS records of each domain name registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything associated with your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses right now and if they're the ones required to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
