The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input 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 site is obtained, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of several domain addresses simultaneously when you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account also, not just 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'll be able to control the NS records of each domain address registered within it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to control everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses currently and if they're the ones needed to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly if it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
