The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want 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 name 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 correct location. Usually a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our website hosting products, will permit you to control the name servers of each domain name registered through our company with only a few clicks, so even when you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you'll not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses together. Additionally we provide you with the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of each domain registered in it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can control everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find all your domains is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses presently and if they are the ones required to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, especially when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain name which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
