The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We permit you to create private name servers for each Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will permit you to handle your domain addresses easily even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain before. Changing the NS records for any domain name registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are accurate or not as to point that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and requires only a couple of clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as part of the free DNS management services we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain address that you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you much more credibility as a business.
